    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
