MythTV — Build your own PVR

PVR Hardware Database
Step-by-step guide to building a MythTV box under Red Hat Linux 9 with a Hauppauge WinTV PVR-250

I have to admit I am impressed by this open source project especially the screenshots and list of features. Not yet sure if I am impressed enough to get another VIVO card and Mini-PC case to replace the possible TIVO purchase in our future. If Tivo’s financial troubles keep up, I may have no alternative than to roll my own.

  • Okay, once more into the breach!

    I bought a PVR250 a couple months ago and have tried repeatedly to get it running under Linux (MythTV and Freevo). Due to various problems, I’d never been successful with it.

    This one looks interesting enough that I’m going to try it again. I’ll keep you posted.
