Currently I'm running under Windows XP with an HVR 4000.
I am using Progdvb and CCcam. It works but ...
I have a problem with my local network, crash the browser or application using the network (my Divx and MP3 files are on a PC dedicated only to that is to say 8 Hard Drives [1x160, 2x400, 3x500, 1x300, 1x250] yet.)
So I used Vista and Seven that work seamlessly with my network but mismanagement of the second screen (because of the Nvidia 7600 GT drivers and their anti-fullscreen on 2nd monitor) and especially crash DVBDream and Progdvb with my card HVR 4000. (No solutions found ...).
So I wanted to switch to Linux to get things running.
I tried to install Linux distributions but do not work properly this DVB card. At best I managed to get the TNT with the card ... All Tutorials explaining how to not working because I did not have the correct version.
Today I downloaded the Ubuntu 9.04 AMD64 distribution (since my processor is an AMD Athlon 64 X2 4000 +)
I think the install but I'd like some info and especially help with the following (if I install this distribution).
Firstly, is that this version of Ubuntu is good for the HVR 4000?
Is that what I could use VDR and / or MythTV with this version with my HVR 4000 card with my Divx/MP3 network. (with or CCcam Gbox or another.)?
I should also plug my phoenix reader on PC, so is it work?
I'll ask questions possibly totally Newbies but I think it could serve as a tutorial for other people.
NB: This is why I try to write the best possible way to also allow the automatic translation of Google and others. ^ ^
I also have a HVR 1300 card, a DVB-T, a DVB-C 2300 and a DVB-S 1.3 (but which has the F connector soldered Input :S )
Is what I might need? For what reason? MPEG Decoder Hard? Multiple DVB card to record and watch two programs?
Knowing that I still want to see the HD channels (the HVR 4000 is the DVB-S/S2 and TNT HD / SD Soft)
And I would like to view the image on my Plasma (Panasonic TH42PZ70EA)
Here is my configuration, it can also help.
