Looks like it's time to get a case.
The Hauppauge WinTV Nova-T 500 adapter is now installed in my cardboard
computer and I have the MythTV Backend installed on the same machine
and the MythTV Frontend on my normal desktop.
I can now watch and record television - whoopee!
I did have to get an digital signal amplifier for the aerial connection
to the card as I was getting only about a 27% signal strength for BBC1
- one of our strongest channels. For the same channel on our
television, connected to the same aerial socket, we get a signal
strength of around 90%. Perhaps the tuner in the television is more
sensitive than the tuners in the TV adapter. With the amplifier in
place it's now up to 51%.
Having made 3 test recordings I can say that recording works and so
does the scheduling.
Just a bit of tidying up then.
