Finally, I have MythTv!

I’ve wanted one for quite a few years now.  I’ve really wanted one since I got my Jetway MiniQ case about 2 years ago – almost to the day.  Now I finally got all the necessary parts today and put it together.  If Jetway was still selling the MiniQ (it’s discontinued) I would DEFINITELY recommend AGAINST using them for a MythTV setup.  The Hauppauge PVR-500 just barely fit in there.  In fact, I had to move a badly placed capacitor slightly out of the way to fit the card in.  I also had to remove the DVD burner (temp for the installation) and unplug the hard drive.  But I finally got it up and running.

Then it took me about an hour of fiddling around with Mythdora to get it to work.  Now I have all the MythTV awesomeness!  I’m so excited – I have been waiting for this day to come.  Now I just need to think of something to record!  Also, I need to figure out how to make the supplied remote control work.  That should be trivial – I hope.

  1. So you ask me what to use, I say Mythbuntu, and you go with Mythdora?!?

  2. ROTFLMAO – actually you said to use the one that had the best reviews. The next day I found a side-by-side comparison and it said that Mythdora was the best one.
