VDR - MythTV : which is better? - 11-August-2009, 19:06

Hi!

I'm new to the forum but have used MythTV for a couple of years now. Not for csharing though. I've been reading up on this subject but having difficulty getting a setup that works. I notice that a lot of the tutorials are for VDR and just wondering why this is so common while MythTV doesn't seem to have much following. Am I flogging a dead horse?

I'm not sure what your question is exactly.... but I used to run knoppmyth on my mini-itx system (currently Windows). I recently invested in a DM600.

My mini-itx system has a terrestial freeview PCI card. When I realised that there is nothing on freeview I realised it is pointless going to great efforts to get the tv part of mythtv working. For me, the mini-itx system is actually a media centre for playing avi/divx downloads and mp3s. I had crossed my mind if people were using myth for cardsharing, are they?

Mythtv is a real ball ache to maintain, even with knoppmyth, and the geeks on the related forums need a good slap imho.

well i have used mythtv (mythbuntu flavour) for ages. Reason why I like myth is TV and videos and music are all run on the same box. SO I can sit on my ass with my remote and flick through all my media or watch a tv channel with ease. Mine is hooked up to 46inch LCD and runs at 1080p always. It upscales SD beautifully and plays my BBC HD perfectly.

Try mythbuntu. It's simple to setup and has a good control panel. I have had sasc-ng running on it with no problems setting up from the tutorials out there. It def isn't restricted to the geeks!

Now only problem I have is sharing the card in my dreambox with sasc. I see lots of tutorials on VDR for this but in my limited understanding of that app, it doesn't look nearly as comprehensive a htpc solution as mythtv.

thats why I ask the question. Perhaps my assumptions are wrong? I'm interested to know what others think.

I tested both and for me VDR is way better than myth. The most important point that led me to switch to VDR was that myth crashes a lot and very unstable. The VDR is the opposite but I missing the extened EPG:(
