You'd rather spend $285 plus whatever DVI capture device that might
exist with linux support (no idea if that does exist - if so, it's
going to be expensive and if so will almost definitely not have mythtv
support for it) instead of $220 for a device with good enough linux/
mythtv support that everything is working quite well right now just to
use HDMI instead of component? Why?
