Re: What happened to SiliconDust?

There are many people in the USA and other countries using SiliconDust tuners with MythTV, but I am not familiar with compatibility in Albania.

Re: Deleting previously-recorded TV shows

An alternate way to get that menu is to hit the right arrow key on the remote when the recording is selected. Also, you can press the D key.

Re: Front End options - wife friendly

I have used a Kodi frontend and the MythTV frontend, and my preference is the MythTV frontend. My wife is happy with it. The PC in my living room is a combined frontend and backend.

Does it have Radeon graphics? Have you tried using VDPAU? https://www.mythtv.org/wiki/VDPAU

Re: Remote as mouse? More control with the IR remote...
