All that I have to do now is install the remote. That's a job for tomorrow.

Thanks for all the help.
Yeah, I think the init scripts in 18.* are broken (at least in .18 they were) because it should be ran as soon as it is installed. Glad to see you finally got everything working.

potential solution

the linux kernel has naitve support for plenty of video and tv cards[2.6 kernels have the best support], check to see if driver is there as a module with 'ls -R /lib/modules/$(uname -r)/ | grep iv # or tv' , cd to the dir that the module is in and use insmod as root when you found the module. read insmod manual page for clarification.

else get a 2.6 kernel and compile in support for your tv-card,

note: that although the driver you downloaded may be for your card, the driver itself may have been designed to work on a 2.4 or 2.6 kernel only, I doubt a 2.2.

the one that you build into a kernel or as a module will always work

if those suggestions don't work, come back here

Oh. The mythtv-backend daemon actually did start when I ran that. The output was just a warning. So it looks like the guide was fine after all...

On a side note, the integrated encoder chip is great. I can continue to run programs that take a lot of processing power while encoding stuff. But decoding a stored file or even watching buffered live TV takes a lot more power. If I even browse the Internet while watching a video it stutters a bit. That's not cool. Will the encoder chip on the 250 rev 1 or on the 350 substantially improve performance?

I assume you mean the decoder, rather the encoder. The 250rev1 and 350 should take about as much cpu as it does to encode when decoding because they both have hardware decoding capabilities.

Oops, yeah I meant to say decoder. Well then it sounds like the upgrade would be worth it. But I don't need the tuner and other perks of the 350. Is there anywhere where I can buy a rev1 250?

On second thought, what I'm seing on the HCL isn't very good. Does the unstable branch of the ivtv driver really support the 350 like the site says?

I just read that the MPEG decoder only works on whatever is plugged into the TV-out jack on the 350. That defeats the purpose of using a CRT or LCD monitor...

I'm trying to use a Hauppage PVR500 in a Debian system, almost everything else seems to work, but I think the module keeps getting misplaced. I've read several articles about this happening, but the various 'fixes' either don't work for me, or are not explicit enough for me to follow along (I haven't built a Linux system in a decade). Any help would be appreciated.
