Re: Ubuntu 14.04 and HVR1250

What's it doing when it fails the capture card setup? Is it just scanning for channels that fails? Not detecting the tuner(s)? Is for OTA or cable TV?

Cheap front end questions

Re: MythTV on OpenELEC/XBMC

Change the localhost IP to the IP of your backend instead of the 127.0.0.1. Also, make sure your database password is entered correctly on the cmyth add-on. Sometimes it generates a random password on install. You can check the database password in /etc/mythtv/config.xml on your backend. This is wha...
