I have decided to take my nice new core quad PC and turn it into a Linux based DVR using Mythbuntu. I ordered a HVR-1600 card to record both HD and SD independently. Anna is looking forward to it greatly, as when we had an old PC serving this duty in the past it was the ultimate TV machine to her. Mostly this is because she sometimes ends up late to see a show while it is in, so now she won’t miss stuff or have to wait for it to download the next day. I am excited to have a great new project to tackle. Looking forward to seeing how much better MythTV is in the last three years.
