This seems to have a lot of overscan, so I effectively only get 1144x644 or thereabouts visible after editing the MythTV interface settings.

HDTV Source: Over the Air
SDTV Source: Comcast Cable (Loudoun County, VA)

Main Issues:
1) C7 Respawning too fast
- this was resolved by Increasing the VMALLOC size (see ... ht=VMALLOC)
2) Black and White Stactic filled images from the PVR-500
- this was resolved by editing the fine tuning for each channel (changing 0 into 2000 seemed to do the trick nicely for me)

- Get a Media Center style case (a project for the winter) - the motherboard is currently sitting naked on a piece of board on the top of the media center rack.
- Upgrade to R5F1

- Leo
