Hiya all,

While looking at items for the Christmas stocking my wife floated the
idea of purchasing a DVD recorder in order to enable her to send copies
of 'Home and Away' to her sister-in-law who will soon be living in a
remote party of PNG. I started talking to her about the benefits of
PVR's over DVD Recorders and wondered if I might be able to float the
idea of a 'myth tv' come media centre type system. The topfield pvr box
looks very nice but I don't think its feature set is going to do what I
want. (I want to dump the footage to DVD or VCD for smaller postage
size. Plus the topfield only has usb for pulling footage off of the
device when I have a perfectly good wired network).

Anyhow, I know a couple of people here have played with mythtv so I was
wondering what kind of spec box you would put together (I'm particularly
interested in quiet cases plus a digital tv card known to work with myth

Hope someone out there might be able to help.
