ClearOS ClearFoundation and ClearCenter have moved to the new website ClearOS.com (https://clearos.com). We are making this change in order to improve search and exposure of ClearOS to the world. There are several improvements that are being made and some that are still on the table for development. The forums are now live on clearos.com and locked on this site until all the redirects are in place. If you have issues using the new site, feel free to ask on the #clearfoundation room in IRC chat on freenode.net or engage with a chat agent on the site if they are around. Our goal is to complete this step so that we can be properly ready for the types of communication that will be essential for the release of ClearOS 7!

Re:MythTV How To? 5 Years, 1 Month ago  
Ok, Right now i'm using the tvheadend (backend) on a Ubuntu 9.10 because of driver issue,, but i'm hoping to get the COS with Tims kernel up and running in a few days.
I use the XBMC on Win 7 as the frontend, witch i am REALY pleased with.
Conections to tvheadend or mythtv is a dream. just add source (Video) htsp:// x.x.x.x:9982 for the Tvheaden or mythtv://username:password.ip adress and so on There you have a compeet media center

Re:MythTV How To? 5 Years, 1 Month ago  
Very interesting topic. Also a big feature for the ClearOS Home Server edition.

I have to try this sometime. I have a old Hauppauge Win PVR-TV-500 (DVB-C). This is for analog television. So i can test this. I now have a UPC Set top box (digital television), but i'm not happy with it. So maybe i can use mythtv on ClearOS, and build later a htpc or buy a mac mini.

Only there are a few problems The first problem i want to watch digital television. The only way to go (Netherlands, when the provider is UPC) is buy a satellite dish (DVB-S). Where i'm living we have UPC as cabel provider. UPC and a htpc is a no go (digital signal is encrypted and the smart card is only usable on the UPC set top-box). Second problem i think my neighbors are not very happy when i'm installing a satellite dish...

Maybe there is a other solution using DVB-T, Digitenne. Only i heard the signal is terrible... It is a MPEG-2 stream (2-3Mbit).

I have only experience with a htpc with a analog card. What are your experiences with digital television? Do you have DVB-S or DVB-T. Any dutch users with experience?

Hello Marcel,
Here, in the flemmish part of Belgium, digital television by cable (DVB-C) is encrypted to. You must use a setup-box of the provider and you cannot use MythTV. That's why I still have analog cable. So I can use MythTV with two Hauppaugge PVR-150 cards (that's the same as one PVR-500 card).

DVB-S and DVB-T can work with MythTV.
I've no experience with DVB-T here, but I did found this. I like it, and I will give it a try once...

No, just watching analog cable
I use 2x PVR150
and I detected that with the new kernel of Tim these cards are working out of the box!
no more need to install the drivers.

I watch TV with a Myth Frontend on Linux Mint and with Myth TV Player on Windows
I'm a happy man it works!

Hello Jan,

Thanks for your reply. I will try to install MythTV on a old test box, and use my Hauppauge PVR-500. Later on i will try to switch to digital television. I will keep you updated so we can exchange some experience.

Thanks Tim Burgess for the link. I will try to install your kernel so i don't need to install a driver for my PVR-500.

Re:MythTV How To? 5 Years ago  
Being a Mythtv and Linux newbie i need some help. I'm trying to setup Mythtv backend on my ClearOS server. First i installed everything on a old test box. The problem the test box is to old. So now i installed everything on my production server. (i have a backup)

What i did:

- installed my Hauppauge PVR-350. (Hardware report shows the PVR-350)

- installed MythTV backend. (yum --enablerepo=base-extras install mythtv-setup mythtv-backend)


How to proceed further? I think i have to configure Mythtv backend, but how. There is no gui...

What I did after installing MythTV-backend on my ClearOS box:

- on a windows client I did install XLaunch (an X server for Windows):
http://sourceforge.net/projects/xming/

- With XLaunch: open an X window

- log in to your ClearOS box on your windows cliënt with Putty - after enabling X11 forwarding to your windows client in your putty session. (Connection > SSH > X11 > enable X11 forwarding + X display location = localhost)

- in the Putty CLI you start 'mythtv-setup' - et voilà: MythTV setup screen comes on in your XLaunch window.

- Now you can make the configuration of your MythTV backend. (much information about this on several MythTV websites)

Maybe there is a way to open the Mythtv-setup screen on your ClearOS box, but I'm too newbie for that.

Re:MythTV How To? 5 Years ago  
get mythbackend to start when the system starts:

/sbin/chkconfig mythbackend on
/sbin/service mythbackend restart

After some googling I found that with these two commands Mythbackend did start on boot, and mythbackend.log was activated (/var/log/mythtv)

Re:MythTV How To? 5 Years ago  
I have one linux-client in my home network (Linux Mint) with MythTV Frontend on it.
On the windows clients, I work with:
- MythWeb for looking at the tv shedules and setting the recordings
- MythTV Player or XMBC for watching Live-Tv or Recordings

> installing Mythweb from the ClearOS repos didn't work. There was always an error. I did install Mythweb from the ATrpms repos.

> XMBC gives me the best quality. It only works if you've the right graphic card:
XBMC for Windows - Graphic card
* ATI/AMD, Intel, or NVIDIA (recommended) graphic controller which supports OpenGL 1.4 + GLSL or later (2.0 recommended).
o ATI Radeon R420 (X800) or newer supported, ATI Radeon R700 (HD 4000) or newer recommended.
o Intel GMA 950 (945G) or newer supported, Intel GMA X4500HD (G45) or newer recommended.
o NVIDIA GeForce 6-Series and newer supported, GeForce 8-Series and newer recommended.
