mythtv recant

Well, after calming down a bit after my last post (and Cardoe debunking most of my issues, thanks man), I’m a lot less ticked about the whole thing. Lately I’ve been really cranky about stuff just not working right. Go figure.

Anyway, I still think it’s silly that they don’t record the media files to a standard container format, but instead of complaining about it, I’m gonna see if there’s anything I can do to help out, if anything. Here’s to hoping.

    You know, using an mpeg2 capture card, myth records in mpeg2, and leaves them in mpeg2. For a while when the frontend wouldn’t work on my mac, I would just copy the .mpg2 and watch it on my machine. We don’t do any after record transcoding though, just adjust the recording quality instead.

    I’m not sure about other capture cards though. I know the old crappy haupauge we used to have ended up in .nuv.

    Oh, and have you seen mythtvfs? http://outflux.net/software/pkgs/mythtvfs-fuse/
