Are there better options in that type of price range?
Have you considered an external tuner such as an HDHomeRun instead of a tuner card?

Re: Premium TV with HDHomerun tuners

I wish I could help, but that is a bit beyond me. Maybe someone else can help, or try posting in the SiliconDust forums. There are some MythTV users on there.

Re: Premium TV with HDHomerun tuners

Which HDHomeRun tuner are you trying this with? Have you tried scheduling something from OTA? Does the segfault occur with OTA?

Re: MythTV And Home Automation

That looks interesting. Where did the Alexa skill come from? Did you write or modify the code, and will you be sharing it?

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

Edit: The above information is for a frontend or combined system.

TiVo BOLT VOX vs. SiliconDust Prime 6 vs. Comcast Xfinity DVR Price Comparison

I put together a price comparison using the VOX, Comcast DVR, and the Prime 6 with MythTV and the SiliconDust DVR service. More details are included in this blog post. The Prime 6 is not out yet, so the price for the Prime 6 is based on the source indicated in the blog post. The comparison is based ...

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

I also stopped using LIRC with my IR remote. Whichever solution you end up using, consider determining if the sites you use most often have a 10-ft user interface option like the one listed here for YouTube.

Re: Looking for recomendation

I agree with the comment above about SiliconDust's products. I have never used a SiliconDust OTA tuner, but my SiliconDust HomeRun Prime works great. Greg - As you may already know, your ability to watch HBO with Myth using a cablecard tuner is rare. Comcast does not have a copy freely flag set for ...

Re: Comcast STB, does firewire still work?

I don't know, but have you considered replacing the STB and getting a cablecard? Good luck.
