I want to thank you all for the input on this. Could you let me know if
I've missed anything or made any mistakes?
Antec Fusion 430
(1) Hauppauge PVR-500
(1) PCHDTV HD-5500
(1) Intel Core 2 Duo E4500
4 GB PC2 5300 (too much?)
(2) 750 GB SATA drives
Microsoft MCE Remote
I think I'm going to make the leap and buy this all this weekend so if
there's anything you think I should consider? What about a
keyboard/mouse? Is that typically needed or do you guys just SSH into
your MythTV boxes?
Thanks, guys. You have no idea how much I appreciate this.
