I've just ordered a sheevaplug+sdhc and now I'm thinking about what could it do apart from usual services (web-mail-file server).
I've already planned to use it as a dlna mediaserver via twonkymedia and now I'm thinking to use it as a dvb-t recorder. In order to do so I need mythtv for the software and a dvb-t usb dongle for the hardware.
And that's the point: which dvb-t dongle shoud I buy? AFAIK the best one shoud be Hauppauge WinTV HVR-1900
witch comes with hardware mpeg2 decoder but I'm not sure I really need it.
In fact dvb-t should be standard mpeg2 transmission and (I'm guessing) it should be possible to save it directly without recompression. If it's possible to do so I could buy a cheaper dvb-t dongle like Hauppauge WinTV-MiniStick HD
So the question is: is it possible to use a dvb-t dongle without mpeg2 hardware decoder to record dvb-t transmission?
Thank you and bye.
