Enable a lightly used Linux machine to additionally host a MythTV video card. Major Issues :
Upgrade to 2.6.22 breaks everything :
ivtvfb-ctl (now gone)
Want to have two independent displays (two simultaneous X servers running)
Need to use
evdevto have dual keyboards
/etc/gdm/custom.conf(not necessary, hardly working)
Added a Belkin wireless keyboard (from woot.com)
- Set up special keys for MythTV
Control cable box via IR transmitter Each of these will be addressed in separate postings.
NB: This MythTV experience is certainly not an advertisement for building a DIY PVR. Lots of the documentation, Wiki entries, and forum advice is badly out-of-date. Oh well.
