I'm building out a MythTV box to get rid of my shoddy Scientific Atlanta
Explorer 8300HD that Time-Warner provides as a DVR and wondering about
others in the LUG who may be using MythTV.
I've already got an analog tuner card. But I'd rather capture digital
streams, perhaps from a firewire tuner, so that way I can keep the HBO
Is anyone here using MythTV with Time-Warner's digital content? Were
you able to get the firewire STB to work OK with Myth? Were you able to
find someone at Time-Warner who understood the obligations imposed on
them by the FCC, obliging them to provide you with an unblocked firewire
tuner upon request?
I found this nifty posting in the mythtv-users archives that should help
with that latter point:
