I also watch distributed MythTV on 3 MediaMVP units running MVPMC. These
cool paperback sized thin clients run linux and are excellent for remote
viewing of recordings, live tv and double duty as slimserver clients. Cost
(40 bucks each) I am prepping my XBox to be a MythTV client through a
script in XBOX mediacenter.
I'm setting up a seperate box to serve as another MythTV backend for HD
(HDTV Fusion 5 lite) recordings and serve as a front end client and HTPC for
the remote analog mythbox which has two PVR 150s. I have a slick and quiet

component dongle. So far, I've just installed debian from a net install.
I'll be leaning on you guys for help in the coming months as I try to learn

God for apt-get and dpkg! Also, I can't even I install my web cam.

Since am very new to linux, I must admit that I only have gotten this far
with excellent "how to" guides and forum support. I must have fought lirc
for over a month trying to figure out how to "build" drivers for the IR
transceivers attached to my PVR 150s. Trying to control two dish network
receivers is a pain but I tried so many times that I accidentally got it to
