MythTV: Slogging Onward

Today, I compiled in the ivtv kernel module and I acutally got mpeg playback working through the PVR-350’s TV-out port.

Hurrah.

I still can’t get X to run over that port, and I haven’t even tried to encode off the cable yet.

Overall, I’m fairly pleased with my progress so far.

I also solved my wireless problems and my lack-of-PCI-slots problems in one fell swoop.

I removed the wireless card, and ran 100 feet of cat5 cable along the baseboard. I now have 100BASE-T switched ethernet in my living room. I am the man!
