Wintv hvr-900h install


Silly me, i went and bought a WINTV HVR-900H for my ubuntu 9.04 and vista systems. Then found out it isn't supported!! AHH!

Onto the question, can anyone figure out how to install the HVR-900H (the H is the key) on linux?? Or is it possible to stream tv from my vista machine to ubuntu machine? If i can, what software can i use...mythtv seems like a good choice but not sure if it receives the stream :S.

My first choice would obviously go to any length to get it installed onto the linux system.

Thanks in advanced

update your kernel -- it should have added support in 2.6.2 and the current is 2.6.3

I've updated but i'm still not getting lights on the side of it :S. Apparently there is support for the HVR-900 but support for the H version was coming soon...If there is support is there anything i would have to do to get it running?
