Hauppauge HVR-1800 TV Capture/Tuner Card


Any mythtv and tvtime slackers out there?

I'm getting ready to dive into that realm and I'm considering a Hauppauge HVR-1800 capture card. I'd appreciate opinions from slackers using that card.

Thanks.

Here's some info from the July issue of the Linux Journal:

http://www.linuxjournal.com/article/10078

I've been using a Dvico FusionHDTV DVB-T and a WinFast DTV100 T for awhile now.

Search for info before buying I purchased the Dvico bleeding edge and had to compile my own modules for awhile, learned my lesson and researched the WinFast. A bit longer in the tooth when I purchased but tried and true. good

A good resource for info is http://www.linuxtv.org

Thanks for the link. However, that piece is outdated, despite being written this past summer. The author installed the HVR-1800 on Ubuntu 7.10, which uses the 2.6.22 kernel. I've read enough to know that 2.6.24 supports the HVR-1800. I confirmed the kernel module is installed in my Slackware 12.1 (2.6.24.5) kernel configuration.

Generally, I have found reports that the digital reception is supported but not the analog, but with the upcoming coerced switchover in February, I'm not overly concerned about analog. Yet because MythTV is an add-on effort within Slackware, I'm seeking opinions from slackers using that card under 12.1. I've got a good handle on the research, I merely want to read opinions from a few slackers because that is the OS I use.

Fair enough, I don't know Ub versions so didn't realise it was out of date. Can't help you with Myth as all we do is timeshift CLI and maybe watch in real time with Kaffeine or Xine very infrequently. Never bothered with analog all free to air is available digital where I live
