New 3-tuner HD backend system finally up

I’ve finally finished putting together my new backend system. I went slightly over my $1,000 budget, but was pretty close.

  • Three HD-3000 tuners
  • 960 Gbytes of disk space
  • FC4
  • MythTV (18.1)

After getting through some initial issues with my hardware, everything has been working flawlessly. I was able to keep the cost down by going with a *CHEAP* video card (it’s just a backend afterall), slower processer, less memory, etc… And the installation time was fast because I didn’t have to configure all of the frontend stuff (lirc, alsa, xorg.conf modelines, etc…)
