3rd time’s a charm?

About a year and a half ago, a friend of mine gave me a computer he was no longer using.  I went ahead and bought a Hauppauge PVR-350 TV tuner card with onboard MPEG-2 encoding and decoding with the hopes of turning the computer into a nice PVR.  Tonight marks the third time (at least) that I have tried to set up this program.  I tried once using KnoppMyth, a Linux distribution based on Knoppix (which is based on Debian) that is meant to simplify the task of setting up MythTV (which is notoriously difficult).  I got to, I don’t know, 75% perhaps and then ran into some snags and gave up for awhile.  Some time later, I tried installing Ubuntu and then installing MythTV on top of that.  I got to probably 90% and then hit snags, got sick of working on it, and gave up.   Over the weekend, I decided I would try installing it again.  So, today I downloaded the installation ISO for Mythbuntu.  I’m in the process of trying to get everything working.  I’ll let you know how it turns out.
