I've been a MythTV user for quite a few years. I started off using a PVR-250 and a PVR-500 capturing video from my DirecTV SD tuners ( changing channels using sub/serial adapters ). Over time, my PVR PCI cards have started to become flakey. I have since then tried to move to using HVR-1950 USB based Tuners with varying success. It appears the newer kernel I use, the more often I'm seeing the firmware hang on the 1950's. If I could find an automated way to reset them once a day, I could live with it, but the solution currently eludes me.
I was looking online, and saw that folks are selling the old HD-PVRs used fairly cheap. Even though I don't need the HD portion, they look like a viable alternative to the 1950's. Does anyone know if they are stable with the more current 4.x Linux kernels?
Does anyone have advice on hardware that I might be able to use with the latest Linux Kernels? I think I'm running into a situation where the kernel and the software has moved on, and even though the driver is still there, for my hardware, it isn't very well tested or maintained ( outside of ensuring it compiles ).
I'm currently using MythTV 0.27 Fixes.
Any advice is welcome.
Do you want advice about what hardware to buy for use with MythTV? Ask here.
