|Live TV and PVR Setup Guide:|
MythTV is a Free Open Source software digital video recorder (DVR) project that is designed to run on Linux, although other operating system packages are available. With MythTV you can watch live TV, schedule recordings, view episode guide information, and many other features you'd expect from a DVR type device. MythTV can also be setup with multiple backends (master/slave) and multiple frontends to spread out the workload of recording, scheduling, and post processing jobs. More information on MythTV can be found on their official website.
The released addon supports MythTV Backend version 0.24 - 0.26.
1 Installing MythTV
MythTV can be setup on a variety of Linux distributions and also on Mac OS X. The MythTV Wiki page has several pages of detailed instruction sets for various distros and tuner types.
