|Re: [PLUG] MythTV + HDHR3-CC + Comcast?|
Last Fall I bought a 2 tuner HDHR3-US when Comcast switched me to all digital. ÂThat part of the conversion worked great with MythTV (the channel setup was a giant pain, which Matt helped me out with).
Now however, 2 tuners are not quite enough, as I'm getting a conflict. I could just live without the conflicting show, I could buy another HDHR3-US for $82 , or I could buy a HDHR3-CC for $150 until 2012-09-21 . ÂWhile more expensive, the HDHR3-CC has both 3 tuners and is cable-card ready.
1) Does that Just Work with Mythbuntu 10.04LTS (yes, 10.04, not upgraded yet, so mythtv-0.23.0+fixes24158-0ubuntu2)?
2) Is the cable-card part worth it? ÂDoes that actually work with Myth and Comcast (or FiOS)? ÂI don't actually care at the moment, but you never know...
3) I guess I could also try old-school over-the-air (OtA), but that requires an antenna and still needs a tuner to plug that into, so to a certain extent I'm back where I started, right? ÂOr am I missing something really obvious?
Anything else I'm not thinking of?
As I write and re-read this, it really seems like it makes the most sense to just bite the bullet and buy the $150 HDHR3-CC. ÂAnd I suppose that frees up the original HDHR3-US tuner for OtA if/when I get around to it?
