I need someone to configure my MythTV setup on Ubuntu 8.04. Background I have just installed Ubuntu 8.04 and the latest MythTV on my PC. A Haupppage PVR-350 card is also installed and seems to work. A DirecTV receiver is plugged into the PVR-350's Cable TV input. MythTV's setup has detected channels 3 and 4, which seems promising. However, when I try to watch 'Live TV', I get a blank screen. I have tried a few solutions but really have no experience to fall back on. Request I need someone to ssh into my PC and make this system run smoothly. I would like the following MythTV features to work: 1) MythTV output should be displayed on the PC monitor, not the TV (in fact, there is no TV plugged into the Hauppage). If this is a problem, let me know and I will connect a TV for testing. 2) I want watch live TV, record programs, and watch recordings. I want to test this at low and high quality levels. 3) I want to test MythTV's ability to insert commercial detection markers during recording.

See above links for more information. 5) I want MythTV to use a program guide from [url removed, login to view] (I have a 7-day trival account) 6) Please document the settings you change so I can reproduce them. I cannot accept a solution without a list of steps. Thanks! If this works, there might be a future project with an IR blaster or similar hardware to control the DirecTV receiver. Thanks for reading this far, and good luck!
