MythTV GUI Settings

Even though my X is running at 720×480 on a widescreen tv I had to adjust the GUI settings as so, big ups to chase

GuiWidth: 641
GuiHeight: 451
GuiOffsetX: 36
GuiOffsetY: 12

Now that I had them set everthing worked fine…. except video playback, I just had to adjust playback to play as 16/9 and now everything is perfect.  Just need to get Lirc working now.

MythTV Revisited

Recently I picked up a PCR-350 card from Chase’s boss and decided to give MythTV a try again.  I have tried it in the past but with little luck since I was using an ATI TV Wonder Pro which does software encoding.  Anyways I have been dabbling with Knoppmyth, Ubuntu, Gentoo and have not been able to get the damn thing working.  The life tv function just displays a blank screen, but when I cat the device to a file it DOES capture.  Anyways I got another machine from a guy that we share and office with so that was to be my new MythTV box…. that changed tonight when I decided to convert my main desktop to the MythTV box and the machine I got from the guy at work to my Desktop. Anyways here are the new specs of my MythTV box, all the parts should be here with in the week.
