Re: New to MythTV, Unable to play Live TV

Which MythTV version are you using? Is it the latest v31 version from the PPA? Which method are you using in VLC to view live TV? Do the HDHomeRun Prime virtual channels numbers work in VLC?

Re: upgrade from scratch

Re: Building v.26

Re: basic question - Hauppauge HD-PVR

Re: Remotes with sturdy switches???

Not universal, but TiVo remotes are fairly high quality. I'm currently using a remote from a TiVo Roamio.

Re: Resurrecting a Simplified Version of Mythbuntu Control Centre

MCP now has three methods for the user to select from to have the backend start after the network is up when the computer is booting.
