So how is the satellite support (in the States) on those MythTV boxes? For that matter, how good is the premium cable channel support?
If I could build a MythTV box with D* support, I would do it today.
Until then, hacking the TiVo is fun and not that expensive: Gen 1 TiVo (when purchased): $100 with contract. Cache card with ethernet interface: $90. 512 dimm for cache card: $50. 2 120 Gig drives: $120.
AND it runs Linux.
