I think Michael is interested in using the extenders designed for  
"Media Center" with a MythTV backend instead.  I think this would be  
great, especially if they could playback ATSC/HDTV programming from  
the back end.  The extenders are usually pretty quiet and compact...  
it's just that they are only designed to communicate with "Media  
While speaking of MythTV, I have several complete MythTV single tuner  
systems on very quiet and reasonably compact Dell OptiPlex GX110  
hardware.  These are leftover after my recent upgrade to ATSC/HDTV.   
They use Nvidia cards, Hauppage PVR analog tuners, Hauppage remotes,  
and MythDora 4.0.  Recording capacity on one is nearly 60 hours, the  
other is nearly 80 hours.  If anyone has an interest in a nice MythTV  
analog starter kit, email me off list for more details.
