I haven't had any experience with this outfit but I would ask the following
How much do I want to spend?
You can certainly build one cheaper and at least as powerful for much less.
Obviously you have to be willing to support it yourself if you go this
Am I willing to go through the learning curve and possible hassle of setting
the system up myself?
The learning curve can be especially steep if you're not at least an
intermediate linux user already.
Do I want the latest software?
Unless they just haven't updated their website they are still using MythTV
0.20 while current is 0.21.
There's probably 10 more questions that others could come up with...
One thing I'm curious about is what audio chipset their using. Since it's a
"commercial" product I would expect to have simultaneous analog and digital
output which I still haven't gotten to work.
