I currently use a Linux box, with a Pentium 4 3GHz and a DVB-S tuner,
to receive free-to-air satellite. I use Kaffeine and am very happy
with the viewing and recording capabilities.
But for Analog, while I also have a tuner and it works fine with
tvtime, I could not get anything that would view and record at the
same time. (I don't understand mythtv setup).
With Saorview going online now, Analog may no longer be an issue. But
is there any hardware/software combination that would give me Saorview
under Linux? If so, what is this combination?
I have Debian Lenny, but I do realize I might have to up and move to
Ubuntu if new code is required for the Saorview spec. The Debian
release cycle is probably making it unsustainable to use, which is a
shame as I love the stability.
Yours, Mikhail Ramendik
