Re: Setting up a Linux MythTV server and web clients

AFAIK, all ota atsc 1.0 are transmitted in mpeg2 format. If you want them in another format, you can transcode them to whatever you want. ATSC 3.0 will be H265 iirc, but that won't happen for at least 2years imo. The file extension in linux means nothing. Earlier versions had extensions of .mpeg ii...

Setting up a Linux MythTV server and web clients

I have a specific DVR setup in mind that I'd like, and I'm trying to determine if MythTV will work for me. * Have MythTV (or some kind of DVR software) be the backend service on a Linux server. * The MythTV backend server would access OTA streams either via a tuner card installed on the server (e.g....
