Hi There,

I want to put together a small form factor machine, based on Linux, that will function as a full PVR.

I was thinking of the following potential setup (some of the parts are donated from an old machine)

Hardware:
Shuttle SFF Case
512MB 2100 DDR RAM
Athlon XP 1800+
80GB IDE Disk
Radeon 8500 (Potentially for Tv-Out...)

Software:

Gentoo Linux (I have quite a bit of Linux experience - use it a lot work-wise as well as on the desktop).
MythTV

I know I need some sort of TV capture card, and was ideally wanting the ability to record/watch freeview digital programs. Was looking at the Nebula DigiTV...Will I be able to use the digital schedule to drive the MythTV scheduling?

Also, can anyone recommend a good IR solution?

Thanks,
Ben
