THESE PAGES NO LONGER UPDATED – HAVE MOVED HOUSE AND NO LONGER HAVE MY PVR SET UP.
This is a set of pages describing my experiences with my MythTV box. It is not intended to be an installation guide, the links below can help with that. Probably not of much use to those in NTSC areas.
Here is my very small gallery.

MythTV Users Mailing List http://www.gossamer-threads.com/lists/mythtv/
A custom Linux distribution based on MythTV http://www.mysettopbox.tv/

Hints and Tips
Jittery TV Picture ?
Go to Setup and the Recording profiles. Change all the resolutions to the PAL resolution of 768 (horizontal) x 576 (vertical)
Rubbish Video Playback on PVR 350
Everything is rubbish except for things recorded via the PVR. Which means DVD’s and mpeg4 / avi files do not play very well. There may be an mplayer patch around that will help with this.
Where Does The Remote Thingy Go
I might just be stupid but it took me quite a long time.
Configuration File and Scripts
Taken from my Knoppmyth setup.
