after many hours of beating my head against a wall, the rayvo -- my pvr -- is back up and running. its been needing an upgrade for a while and this week i had the time to sit down and do it. originally, i installed fedora core 3, but the capture card drivers weren't playing nice -- i'd either get video with no sound or sound with no video. grrr. so, last night i reinstalled fedora core 2 and everything went smoothly. there is still a good deal to configure, but it's back to capping my favourite shows. woo-ha. i had to take a massive shower to clean the code off me and now i need outta the house.
