I'll also chime in and reccomend the 7NIF2. As others have mentioned
the lack of SPDIF on board might be an issue, however in all other
respects it's a great choice. The TV-Out quality is fantastic and
having it on the backplane is a nice plus. I've also used one of
these boards to drive a HDTV LCD for a bit without issue.
Your choice of Suse 9.3 should be fine. I run 9.2 Pro on all of my
machines now. Just install apt-get and add snowmans repository and
you should be able to get all the depencies for Myth as binaries.
Also, grab the LSB init script for the backend from the contrib
directory it was built with Suse in mind.
