Hey every one, recently Ive been diving into more and more projects for other people and for myself to get more hands on experience in the it field. Right now im really getting into diy dvr set ups. My first set up I used an old pentium 3 computer and upgraded the ram to 1 gig and put in a bigger hd for more video storage time. I put in the haupauge video card and installed Ubuntu and mythtv. Ive set everything up and everything works great. Works just as good as when I had tivo and I have alot more functions. I told a freind of mine about the set up and he bassically called me a lier and said Im not running a pentium 3 blah blah blah. Im not entirely sure how the Haupauge card works but wanted to get some more info on it. I know the card does some of the encoding so it takes stress off of the processor. I explained that to my freind and he said thats not possible blah blah blah. Can any one break it down for me?
