I'm starting a project to build a MythTV box for my living room. Anyone else
currently working with MythTV on CentOS 4?
Here are some of the gotcha's I've worked through so far:
- I was originally planning on using KnoppMyth. But their CD appears to be only for
i386. Without realizing it, the P4 CPU I picked is one of the newer ones with the
x86_64 extensions. It won't boot i386. Thus, my plan B is going with CentOS4 x86_64
and installing from the ATrpms collection. Here's someone who's already doing this:
- I picked up a cheap Radeon 7000 with TV out. Wrong! Various posts seem to say that
the TV Out functionality is not supported by the X.org radeon driver. It *does* work
with the vesa driver though. I just don't know if video and DVD playback will work
with the vesa driver. Does anyone know?
- The stock RedHat kernel does *not* have irda support enabled. I downloaded
126.96.36.199, enabled irda, and my motherboard's irda port is found and configured. We'll
see if I can get it to work with the IR adapter in the nMediaPC case I bought.
