There are certain chipsets that will cause you problems with ivtv. Save
yourself the hassle and get an intel motherboard.
7 frontends seams a little crazy. You could get away with 2 frontends.
One dedicated box in the room you watch the most tv in and will get the
most use. And 1 frontend with the video/audio modulated and fed back
into your cable system on an unused channel. Then use an RF remote to
control myth no matter what room your in. It works great and will save
you some cash.
