    More than 1 tv card on the same machine


    Hi alll

    Has anybody probed with more than one tv card on the same machine? Y have to record more than one channel at the same time, and I have no idea if it is possible or if there is another possibility to do that.

    Any ideas would be great, and bad ideas too...

    These might help (or not):

    Talks about how you can't yet set up different recording profiles:

    Seems to indicate that multiple cards is possible:

    I would dig a little more into the MythTV docs and see what it says.

    Thankd, I have found too mythtv, it seems very good. I only have to know different things, like decide the distribution I will use, and compare differente rates of video and its amount of space in HD, and I will be able to start with an video archive system.

    Any ideas about hardware recommended would be great... again

    This is the hardware requirements section of the MythTV doc:

    While there are definately minimums, if you want to create a PVR box you'll want the best pieces of whatever you have lying around. If you have even a minimal budget to spend, you'll be fine.
