Here's the challenge I'm faced with. I'm in the Seattle area and Mom and Dad, in LA, have a MythTV box primarly as a backend with a new (at Christmas) Hauppauge WinTV-PVR-150 installed but not setup. I can't directly connect to the MythTV box because of a NAT router / firewall. Through their headless file server (Ubuntu Dapper Drake server install) I can ssh into the MythTV box and can even tunnel to the MythWeb server. I was able to do a bunch of remote work, including the upgrade from Edgy to Feisty, and got the PVR-150 working with the ivtv tools. I was even able to "record" a clip of Leno on the Tonight Show from 1000 miles away over ssh.
cat /dev/video0 > test.mpg
How do I:
- run mythtv-setup remotely
- and/or setup mythtv to recognize the PVR-150 card without using mythtv-setup?
It seems like there ought to be an INSERT query I can run against the mySQL database, restart the backend and have it just work.
