Installing MythTV on Debian Etch part 2

After installing the basic hardware support on the bare Debian system I used this page from the MythTV wiki as a guide to installing the rest of the software necessary. I decided to use the MythTV packages rather compile my own. This guide is rather brief but it gets the MySQL installed and main MythTV packages from the excellant debian-multimedia.org repository of Christian Marillat. A key package that you need but isn’t mentioned is the xmltv packages, just use apt-get to install, this include a bunch of perl scripts for grabbing TV channel information from various web sites.

Another site I used for checking details and general information is the wilson-stowe.com site which has a real wealth of info about MythTV and also setting up capture cards.

Once you finally get MythTV up and running here is a handy link to keyboard controls for watching TV.
