The only tuner I care about is an HDHomeRun, so no need for V4L etc. And
I'm not asking for official support. Just some idea why the "make install"
errors out. I made a few changes to get the compile, and want to test and
see if it's working. Is there another way to manage this bit? Can I just
copy all the .so and executable files out to a directory and run it there?
I'll try gmake and/or make sure that it's using the gnu version. OI uses
gnu versions of the utilities before the Solaris versions by default
though. As it's just a backend and won't be doing anything other than
recording, I could make a low power box do it, I just wanted to try it. I
did neglect to mention that I only care about the backend here, no display
required other than mythtv-setup which just needs X/qt IIRC.
