Hi Richard,

I'm using a hauppauge pvr-350 pci card on ubuntu as there is a 
pre-compiled package of mythtv for this.

The downside is I have yet to get past the initial configuration of the 
software for me to be able to use it, do you know what I mean when you 
have to tell it where it can get the listing information from, it seems 
the software likes this information in an xml format, but for the uk I 
have no idea where to get this from sadly :(

So anyway forgetting that part I'm pretty much also trying a similar 
thing to yourself, as well as being able to have a personal video 
recorder as well :)

Any information I have I will pass onto you very soon, I just need to 
find it again as its been a while, right now you probably know more than 
me, but will see what I know and maybe there is something in there that 
you may nor :-)

Good luck
