Ok, for those of us in the US, we’ll be glad to know that Schedules Direct is now live with two weeks to spare. It seems that the easiest way to perform the upgrade is to upgrade to 0.20.2, and then change the configuration to use SD instead of Zap2IT. Note that I haven’t done it myself yet, but that there are instructions on the MythTV wiki.
My work machine at the moment is a Toshiba Tecra M4 tablet, and I figured I’d give a Ubuntu live CD a go over the week and play with setting up this disc array. I only have a Ubuntu live CD for version 5.04 lying around, so that’s what I used.
The machine booted fine, once I’d disconnected the USB external keyboard, which stopped the hardware detection from working for some reason. Dunno why. In fact plugging the USB keyboard in at any time killed the X server so that the mouse and keyboard never worked again. Odd.
