i have spent many hours and still can't get Freevo to run.

i have all the dependancies. to get it installed, but i still get errors. maybe some one can help me. here is what i get:

Code:
[draldrich@localhost ~]$ freevo

Error: TV_RECORD_DIR not set
Please set TV_RECORD_DIR to the directory, where recordings should be stored
or remove the tv plugin. Autoset variable to /home/draldrich.

Error: VIDEO_SHOW_DATA_DIR not found

Error: can't find /tmp/TV.xml
Use xmltv to create this file or when you don't want to use the tv
module at all, add TV_CHANNELS = [] and plugin.remove('tv') to your
local_conf.py. TVguide is deactivated now.


Can't find lsdvd. DVD support will be limited and maybe not
all discs are detected. Please install lsdvd, you can get it
from http://acidrip.thirtythreeandathird.net/lsdvd.html

After installing it, you should run 'freevo cache --rebuild'

oh, i dont have a tv tuner card in my system. I want to see if i can get it to run before spending cash on a card. could the lack of card cause a problem?

thanks
