I have now succeded in making my Linkstation Live (v2) 500GB to a mythtv backend.
As a tuner I use a takeMS DVB-T USB 2.0 tuner.
I have installed debian sid armel on he box and use kernel 2.6.24-rc5-g4d249b70-dirty from the orion git repository.
Mythtv requires a few hacks and a lot of time to get compiled.

As a frontend I use a Hauppauge MVP with firmware from http://www.mvpmc.org.
this means that the MPEG-2 signal I get from DVB-T doesn't need to be transposed to something else on the backend. The frontend have hardware support for MPEG-2.
And no, this is not a system for HD-tv. There will probably be Linux hackable MPEG-4 devices available in a few years, so I will wait for this.

@Andreas Bach Aaan
I am going to try this, so any hints about the bugs you found would probably
be useful.

I found this:

The mythtv svn already has Andreas' fixes in

Useful instructions:

except use the svn source
Don't use svn "trunk", it is in transition to qt4, and not stable.

some armel compiled debs for prerequisites such as lame can be got by adding

to /etc/apt/sources.list

The other things:

VITAL!!! use gcc-4.2 and g++-4.2 NOT 4.3 (which is the default on armel sid)
(install gcc-4.2 and g++-4.2 debs, and change /usr/bin/gcc from a symbolic link
to gcc-4.3 to a link to gcc-4.2. Same for /usr/bin/g++.

If xxx.cpp (xxx = whatever) fails to compile, go to its subdirectory, and temporarily change the Makefile there to compile with -O1 not -O3 (create a modified Makefile.O1 with this change in both gcc and g++ options) and then enter :

make -f Makefile.O1 xxx.o

After successful compilation go back to the top directory of the mythtv source and resume the make process.

The problem files that needed special treatment (compiling with -O1 not -O3) were

subdirectory: libs/libmythtv/

Hello Andreas,
In regards to what you have done, do you think it can be possible to use the LS2 to record DVBT as a recorder.
My goal is to creat a kind of recorder that could be set to record at specified time/date a specfied program in a file.
Only the usb tuner and a very basic HTML interface should be needed.

Playback is not necessary for me as I use a multim├ędia device.
