Community support

See the following support channels for help:

Live Support (IRC)

Live support is available in the form of Internet Relay Chat (IRC). Proper etiquette is to ask your question and wait. Users will periodically check in from time to time and may know the answer to your question. IRC is not instant response, it is more like under 4 hour response.

IRC Clients

If you have an IRC Client installed, then visit us at #ubuntu-mythtv on irc.freenode.net. If you don't have one installed currently, you can try some of these below:

Web IRC Client

If you do not have an IRC client installed, then you may visit us via our web based IRC client here. Please keep in mind that IRC often does not provide instant answers. Ask your question and stick around.
