In theory, most of the "appliance-like" systems (such as a dedicated
MythTV box) should exhibit usage patterns that favor a swapless
Now, in practice there could be exceptions. But most of the times, that
dedicated MythTV box in your living room should work better without swap
(provided that the hardware was chosen properly).
I feel that such a recommendation (don't use swap if it's a dedicated
system) should actually be added to those MythTV HOWTOs floating around.
