FireWire As Black Box Recorder

Post by linuxrocks123 » Mon Aug 13, 2018 8:25 pm

Hi guys,

Firewire recording wasn't working so I wrote support for it as a black box recorder that uses test-mpeg2. Is there any interest in this? Should I post it somewhere?

If it uses the import recorder you could post it in the wiki page https://www.mythtv.org/wiki/Import_recorder . You can post instructions there with URLs for how to download it and install it.
I used firewire for several years and it was very unreliable. I believe fewer set top boxes will support it in future and it may be something that is dying out.
