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
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
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?
