I'm about to take the MythTV plunge. Current plan is to use a MSI Mega
PC 180 w/ a AMD 3K XP processor, 1G Ram and 120G hard disk local to the
PC. Additional storage will be provided by a file server.
Satellite board is the SkyStar 2 DVB board. Initially I'm going to use
the on-board nForce2 for TV out - but will probably migrate to a proper
Video card with hardware MPEG 2 in the future.
Any comments on the hardware? Anything you'd do differently?
Which distro do people recommend? I've got a fair bit of experience as
far as Linux goes - but most of it is in the embedded space.
What are the trade offs as far as MythTV goes?
