Myth has been something I've been planning to do for a while - I've
got as far as building a custom minimal Linux dist (based on Hardened
Linux From Scratch) with Myth now compiled. The plan is to have a
frontend build to boot off CompactFlash linked to TV and then multiple
backends with DVB-T cards and a PVR250 for hardware MPEG conversion
(for Sky).

I'd be interested in some info on how you got Myth to do with. I'd
like to combine it with WakeOnLan (WOL) to handle unscheduled
recordings as well.
