The information in dvrupgrade.com seems to indicate that the standard
upgrade/hack software already available will also work on a Series 3,
meaning it's possible to run custom software on the Series 3. Wouldn't
it then be possible to do a pure software solution, e.g. something that
grabs the stream from tivo's ringbuffer and sends it over the network
to a mythtv backend?
