I am using a hauppauge  pvr 250 with mythtv. It works well on Fedora Core 1
and apt-get updates using synaptic and I have a DVD writer connected for
burning mpg to DVD with dvdrecord. Machine is a 1.6 Athlon with 512 RAM and
three 80GB disks.(one holds mp3 collection). I particularly like being able
to setup recordings from anywhere using mythweb via apache. All the other
image/sound/weather/web browser addons also work so next job is to get a
X-box and use it as the mythfrontend under linux. I certainly will need help
with that but friend of a friend in the States has done it so will be
'enlisting' his help.
