Siemens sells the Gigaset M740 AV, a DVB-T receiver and recorder,
running linux in an open source firmware
The box is presented (sorry, in german) on the siemens site :
If it's possible to do a full rewrite of the firmware to make it run
mythtv, this would be a very good mythbox!
The hardware is very interesting:
2 DVB-T tuners
True TV-Out (there is a directfb driver in the firmware)
SPDIF/Analog sound output
2 USB2 ports
1 Ethernet 10/100 port
Very low power consumption, power supply included in the box.
It is sold ca. 240 euro in germany, which is quite cheap.
