MythTV is a “Personal Video Recorder”, i.e. a computer-based video recorder. It supports pausing and rewinding live TV, multiple tuner cards, hardware or software video compression, onscreen program guides and a distributed architecture.
MythTV requires tuner drivers which support the V4L standard. Currently no official FreeBSD driver does so, but the latest version of a beta version of the cxm driver is available from http//usleepless.110mb.com/pvrxxx_port-10042007.tgz. Problems have been reported with this port; if you use it, you should join the FreeBSD-multimedia mailing list and report where appropriate.
