p7131 Radio

Jan. 21, 2008, 10:53 p.m. quadruple play

Yipeee. After a quite a struggle, the analog TV tuner on the P7131 is working fine with mythtv and tvtime. However I cannot say the same about it's radio. The radio doesn't work at all. The only thing I can get out of it is an entry in /var/log/messages that says "tuner' 1-004b: tuner has no way to ...

SSL on raditha.com has been broken for a while. That has been effecting my positioning on google. In the past almost every page on this site has been in the google index now many of them have disappeared and the few that remain appear as http://raditha.com:443/....If you try to access those links yo ...

MythTv Working at last

Jan. 17, 2008, 10 p.m. quadruple play , video

After sorting out all the RPM dependencies for MythTV In finally managed to get the it installed on my media center. No I didn't use LinuxMCE, I just installed all the RPMs using yum.

Linux MCE

Mythtv on Fedora seems to be such a pain in the neck. Perhaps I should have downloaded mythdora instead but what I decided to do after giving up on Fedora 8 was to download linux MCE. There are two flavours, one for idiot and another for non idiot. Later on I found that there is little difference be ...

Mythtv is it just a myth?

Jan. 13, 2008, 4:33 a.m. quadruple play

Been struggling with MythTV for a nearly two weeks. It seems that MythTV is just a myth. At first I tried to install from the sources but ./configure kept on complaining about a missing liblame even when it was present on the hard drive for all to see. So I switched to YUM.Installation through yum d ...

Fedora 8 what a bore

Jan. 7, 2008, 10:03 a.m.

Each new version of Fedora seems to be worse than the last. Fedora 8 is what was installed on my new machine (which is to be a media and telephony server). The only reason that Fedora was chosen was on the basis of better the devil you know than the one you don't I have been using fedora for a long ...

A new machine.

Jan. 2, 2008, 5:06 a.m.

Fedora 7 came and went. It passed me by, partly out of laziness and partly out of choice. That's not going to happen with Fedora 8. I have downloaded and installed it on a brand spanking new machine. This machine is going to be my media and telephony server. It's going to host MythTv and asterisk so ...
