    MY HARDWARE
  • Knoppmyth: R5C7
  • Motherboard: Asus A7N8X-E Deluxe Socket A nForce2 Ultra400/MCP-T,GbLAN,Firewire
  • CPU: AMD Sempron 2500+ 1.750 GHz Socket A 333MHz, 256KB cache, BOXED
  • RAM: DDR-DIMM PC3200 512MB DDR CL2.5 Memory 184-P (for DDR-PC400MHz)
  • Graphics Adapter: Gainward FX Powerpack Pro/660 TV/DVI
  • DVD-RW: NEC DVD recorder ND-3500A IDE Silver Bulk,DVD+R/+RW/DVD-R/-RW
  • Mouse/key: Creative Desktop Wireless 6000, keyb/mouse, USB
  • Mouse 2: Logitech MediaPlay USB Mouse
  • Joypad: Logitech Dual Action USB
  • Joypad: Saitek P880 USB Joypad
  • Floppy: Sony Floppy Drive, 3,5" 1,44MB Silver Floppy Drive Internal
  • Screen: My CRT Sony TV is the only output ever connected to this setup
  • Network: CNet CWP-854 Wireless-G PCI Adapter

    Stuff that I had to change:
  • PAL: I had to edit XFree to get a good PAL picture on my TV, see the bottom of the post for my config.
  • Audio: I had to use "v4lctl volume mute off" and "alsamixer" and "alsactl store" to get the sound working. It's all detailed here how to do it. I suggest that you play around with the percentages to get the best sound possible on your setup.
  • XMLTV tv_grab_no: I had to install the latest version of xmltv (nightly tarball) To build it I followed this: NorwegianMythConfig, for the stuff that complained about "unrecognized option `-Wdeclaration-after-statement'" I :
    Code:
    $ cd /root/.cpan/build/<package>
    $perl Makefile.PL
    $vi Makefile
    This is to remove the unrecognized compile flag, then just "make && make install" Then I ran "mythfilldatabase --graboptions --configure" as mythtv, and then "<alt>-<s>" to map the channels. Finally I again ran "mythfilldatabase". It seems to work now.
  • RaLink2500 wificard:I read Debian_rt2500_Howto. I skipped module-assistant as it's already in place
    Code:
    $ apt-get apt-get install module-assistant
    $module-assistant prepare
    Added to /etc/apt/sources.list :
    Code:
    deb ftp://ftp.sunsite.dk/mirrors/debian        unstable main contrib non-free

    then
    Code:
    $ apt-get update
    $ apt-get install rt2500-source
    $ module-assistant auto-install rt2500-source
    The install didn't load the module on my system, or add it to /etc/modules , so I:
    Code:
    $ modprobe rt2500
    $ ifconfig -a
    $ echo rt2500 >> /etc/modules
    You can now use wifi tools to set up the card.

    Stuff that's not working:
  • Joystick navigation in the frontend, see here for my description
  • Having both bootsplash and virtual consoles available, see here for my findings

    Comments/Observations, some are more detailed in my blog
  • Previous versions of KnoppMyth was hopeless with my keyboard and mouse. It was jittery and useless. Now it's perfect.
  • I have three tunercards. Hauppauge HVR-1100, Pinnacle PCTV Stereo and the Terratec Cinergy 600 TV. Only the Cinergy is installed
  • The Hauppauge was worthless in KnoppMyth due to no support in the cx88 driver.
  • The Pinnacle had good sound, but bad picture in KnoppMyth
  • The Cinergy has great picture but crap sound in KnoppMyth
  • Both the Pinnacle and the Cinergy is saa7134 tuner cards.

    Attatchment:
  • My XF86Config-4 for nVidia GeForce FX5200 TV out
