mini mythtv on an usb diskonkey ?

Post by darkverve » Wed Jul 30, 2008 7:08 pm

is it possible to install mini mythtv on an usb diskonkey ?
i want to be able to use my win xp and when i entertain friend and familly i want to switch to mythtv in an instance without using dual boot and things like that

just plug the usb , boot the computer from the usb and nothing more

after finishing .... unplug the usb ,boot from HD and life goes on.

Just Thinking about that .... portable MCE

so is it possible?

if this is not the forum than can you tell me where i can find info on that ?

Assuming that your computer hardware is supported by MiniMyth and that your computer will boot from a USB device (some computers that claim support have BIOS bugs that cause it to not work correctly), it should work. You can find instructions here:
MiniMyth running on an Acer ApireRevo 3610 and a Zotac ZBOX-ID80-U. Find out more at my MythTV page.
