I am a happy VDR user since a couple of years ago. Before VDR, I used Mythtv but switched due to its hardware requirements and bugs. My VDR is an (very) old Duron 700 MHz with 1 Technotrend FF card and 1 PVR 350 card. It has been no problem recording two channels (SD) at a time and watch a different recording trough FF card tv-out. FANTASTIC! The VDR box is soon going to be replaced by a faster machine, but will keep the current tv cards.
The problem is now to find out how to setup VDR on my new computer. Should I use - FF-TVout? - vdr-xine - xine-liboutput? By just reading this thread, I can see that people has different favourites. My personal fealing is that VDR is lacking recommendations / good documentation on how to setup/configure "TV-out" in the best way, or at least describe pros/cons for each alternative. Is this a point where Mythtv beats VDR? I hope that I am wrong. Or have I missed anything? regards, baronen 2009/4/29 VDR User <user....@gmail.com> > I've only ever used vdr-xine and I must say it's pretty easy to get > going.
