Hauppage PVR-500

The Linux HTPC Howto

This is my site for one of my favourite Linux applications: MythTV, a Digital Video Recorder (DVR). In October of 2006 I took the plunge, bought a machine, a capture card, downloaded MythTV and settled in for an afternoon of Googling, installing, and configuring. (Well actually a few afternoons, and evenings, as I tried various things, including a couple Windows DVRs.) Two years later I take it for granted that I can watch TV the way I do, and I would never go back to just a plain old TV.
