List of working Set Top Boxes?

Post by ReKa » Fri Jan 16, 2009 11:46 am

Hi,

I don't know anything about hardware. I just want to buy a cheap Set Top Box and install minimyth on it.
Which box should I buy? I have no idea, which chipsets or boards are in the boxes.

Does there exist a list of set top boxes which are working "out of the box" with minimyth? Just installing and running is that what I want.

Edit: I'm thinking about a STB as frontend device in every room. a box with buildt in DVD would be nice for me ;)

Thanks for your help!

What are you using for your MythTV Master Backend hardware?
MiniMyth running on an Acer ApireRevo 3610 and a Zotac ZBOX-ID80-U. Find out more at my MythTV page.

For the backend I plan to start with an IBM PC with Pentium 4, 3GHz and 1GB RAM I have here. Later I want to change it to a low power system because I want it to run 7x24h.

I am thinking of having 2-3 DVB-S Cards in the backend and want to start with 2 (diskless?) Frontends.
I don't want to use the backend as frontend, too.
