The problem with the older kernel is that I don't have the catalyst drivers for that kernel.
I need the drivers because of fan control and 3D acceleration in some of my VMs.
Naturally, setting it up takes lots of passion, time and resources, which I cannot provide you right now, as my TV experience is rather limited.
Building a great multimedia library takes effort and dedication.
My article hardly scratches the surface of what Myth TV is capable of.
The question is, how simple would it be to get it installed and working?
First, just as the official wiki on Myth TV site says, Myth TV is not for everyone.
Simple, it runs on Ubuntu Linux and if you are familiar with Ubuntu you know that in general, hardware works right from the start without the need to look for drivers.
And if that wasn’t a good enough reason to build one, here are some more: It will allow you to burn your recordings to DVDs, it will include a jukebox to store and play all your music, it will allow you to rip CDs and DVDs, includes a Photo Gallery utility, includes emulators for your favorite game consoles, includes a web browser, displays the weather and the news, it will stream over-the-air cable or satellite programs just like you would with a Slingbox. So why did I choose Mythbuntu over all other PVR software?
