    Yeah, I'm having a pretty rough time with MythTV. Freevo, on the hand, installed with a simple

    Code:
    urpmi freevo
    The freevo docs clearly say nothing will work w/out xmltv, so that explains my my current situation. I'll let you know when I get it working if that fixed everything.

    Perhaps not. All 7 seasons of ST:TNG are out already. As long as they keep releasing CSI, I'm good.

    I'm running a media center on mythtv. I have had a very good experience with it. all I did to install was yum --enablerepo atrpms install mythtv-suite

    After a few weeks of configuration, I have a pretty good understanding of the program, and I can probably help you with problems if you have them

    I could be wrong, but I think they're software that lets you turn use your computer and a TV card to create your own PVR device, like a TiVo.

    mjman,

    I'll get back to you in that. Like I said, I've got freevo installed, I just have to get xmltv working.

    1 thing... Can use MythTV as an FM tuner?
