Since I can't get either to install easily, I'm going to ask which one you all think is the better and put my energy into that. Thanks again! Jeremy...

    Have you tried KnoppMyth? I know a couple of guys who said it worked pretty well for them:

    There are two major products that come out of Berkeley: LSD and UNIX. We don't believe this to be a coincidence.

    I am voting for MYTH because I am working on a myth install myself and could use all the info I can get too.

    Some people have told me they don't think a fat penguin really embodies the grace of Linux, which just tells me they have never seen a angry penguin charging at them in excess of 100mph. They'd be a lot more careful about what they say if they had.

    Flatline,
    What's the knoppmyth all about? The web-site is pretty vague. Is it like a knoppix cd, where you have to boot the disc? Can you install it?

    I believe it's a Knoppix-style "live CD" that you can install to your hd if everything seems kosher. I haven't personally used it, but I've heard it mentioned as the easy myth.

    Neither. If I like a show enough I'll buy a season on DVD.

    Freevo installed flawlessly and started up fine. It looks nice, but I couldn't see any TV becuase of the problem below.

    I'm having problems with xmltv, tv_grab_na_dd --configure to be exact. I get an error after I enter my user name for zap2it, but I believe that's becuase I don't have the Perl module Term::ReadKey installed. Here's a list of required modules w/ the corresponding scripts.

    I recently saw Punky Brewster, Fat Albert, and Unsolved Mysteries on DVD. Surely if they'll put those in a boxed set they'll eventually get to your favorites.
