I don't know how many people know about it, but there is a distribution 
designed specifically for running MythTV on EPIA-M systems.

It's called MiniMyth.

http://linpvr.org/

I've got the same setup but I don't actually use MiniMyth. I built my 
system from Scratch just to see how everything works. Didn't need to do 
anything too fancy in the end, just a matter of compiling the right 
things....

Anyone is welcome to what I've got if they want it, but it is rather 
messy and the whole chrooted build environment is actually incorrect at 
the mo' in that it links against system libs in some places rather than 
the ones I've built for the EPIA.... but hey it's work in progress.

I am gonna look again at MiniMyth tho' as it may be a bit more mature 
than when I last looked at it.

All the best

Col.
