Question MythTV: Setup Hauppauge PVR-150 Remotely?


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:
  1. run mythtv-setup remotely
  2. 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.

I'm reasonably certain that it's illegal to use mythtv to steal cable services in this manner. You might also consider that you could run afoul of laws regarding interstate traffic of stolen property. Or are you trying to fix a configuration so that they can use it?

Over the air!

That's why it's connected to an antenna.

I'm trying to remotely fix/setup the configuration so that may parents can use the MythTV box to watch and record local (over the air) programing.

Use "ssh -X" and then run mythtv-setup. It should work with the tunelling also.

There definitely is, but you will have to figure it out yourself probably. Or ask on the mythtv list.

It looks like he is just setting up the box so the parents can use it.
