DTS, Dolby Digital, etc output on Linux?

I'm current using a headless Linux server and an HD300 front end. I haven't found anything I like as much as SageTV w.r.t to TV recording and Movie integration, so I'm sticking with it as long as I...

Thanks for the list Drew. I've got a minimal install working now. For anyone else who cares, I'll be a bit more verbose.

Same problem here. The last Sage TV release for Linux got sort of borked (it was mostly 7.1.7 files), then fixed later, but it's still 7.1.9.1. What should we do?

That's not a bad idea, I'll try that. But doesn't that just move my problem? Aren't there other 32-bit libs (like libc) that I'll need? I used to install ia32-libs for this. How did you manage that?

Moving sage install to Ubuntu 11.10 amd64.

For some reason, I didn't think about the user-level software having to know about the offload, VDPAU in this case. Of course it does. It has to know to hand off an H.264 stream rather than just...

Advice on a Linux PC-as-extender replacement.

Keep the recording path simple. If you drop data somewhere between signal and hard disk, it's gone. I've even considered putting the HDHR directly connected to my sage server on it's...

I suspect you could upgrade to 7.1.8, then just update the SageTV7.xml file from 7.1.9. I haven't tried this, but it's my best guest for what 7.1.9 was supposed to be on Linux

Linux server version of 7.1.9 might be wrong.

If I diff my 7.1.7 install against an untar'd 7.1.9 directory, only the EULA and SageTV7.xml file differ.

If I diff 7.1.8 and 7.1.9 (or my 7.1.7), I get:
