Looking for MythTV PBI Testers

A PBI module has been created for MythTV, but we need testers to see if it works and to provide feedback on its usage. Testing this PBI will also allow feedback on whether the current webcamd drivers support TV tuner cards and to ensure that the webcam man pages are accurate regarding those cards. I suspect that MythTV on PC-BSD will be a process as we discover what hardware is supported, get some usage docs written, and fix any PBI and/or webcam glitches that are discovered along the way.

If you’d like to try out the PBI, download the one that is appropriate for your architecture.

To install, you can either double-click the downloaded PBI in sudolphin or, as the superuser, install it with the /PCBSD/Scripts/runpbi.sh /PATH/TO/PBI command.

Wikipedia indicates that you’ll also need a supported TV tuner card or a firewire connection to a digital set-top box.

We’ll be revamping the Multimedia section of the Handbook for 9.0. For now, I’ve started a placeholder for MythTV. Feel free to add the results of your tests there. You can also leave a comment here or on the pbi-dev mailing list.
