MythTV Time

Friday 26 of December, 2008
I'm building my own PVR. Lots of reasons why, but the biggest is the hassle of trying to continue using the VCR. So in the the new century I come - again..

I have a Dell GX280 that I won at a work give-away. 2GB RAM, 2.4GHz Pentium-4.
Video out - Diamond HD 2600xt Sb Edition (ATI Radeon)
Video in - A loaner that I'm not sure of.

I installed Mythbuntu 8.10 without incident.
I found this in the dmesg log
