Can I record digital channels using something like MythTV

Category:FiosTV FAQ


You can record the Local Digital Broadcast channels.


This author is not familiar with MythTV but one configuration that is known to work is  GBPVR with a QAM enabled tuner card such as the Hauppage HVR-1600


The following SW and HW is required for this configuration.


Software The download for GBPVR and the  install instructions can be found at http://gbpvr.com/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/HomePage.



Hardware Hauppauge WinTV-HVR-1600 model 1178
product code 74021

You must download the Version 3.4D1  QAM driver from their website as it is not included in the retail box.(http://www.hauppauge.com/pages/support/support_hvr1600.html)

The product code MUST be 74021 as other HVR-1600 product codes do not have the necessary HW on the board for QAM tuning.
