In my continuing plot to create a MythTV box out of an old laptop, I
am now eyeing the hard drive. It is a standard 2.5" drive of unknown
speed (I'd guess 5400, no more) and 40GB of space. I'm looking at
one of these: http://oss.wischip.com/ Which can give me MPEG-2,
MPEG-4, and DivX.
Do I need to get another hard drive? The PlextorX will be connecting
through a USB 2.0 PCMCIA card, and I'm not sure if a USB 2.0 hard
disk would be good because of the bus bottleneck issue.
There is a 4-pin FireWire port on the computer, but nothing I've
seen uses it (aside from cameras).
Any suggestions on the drive?
