I have a Tivo's Series 2, and have a 3Com USB Ethernet card I got for
$10, and now I can down load my guide data over my cable modem.
I have most of my MythTV box working and the one big difference is the
way the ir remote works.
On Tivo you can do almost every thing with just 4 buttons, left, right,
up and down. That would include watching live tv, playing recorded
programs, changing options, etc...
Also, one thing that myth tv needs to do always record live tv, if it is
not recording a program. This will let you watch a show, pause it, go
set a different program to be recorded at another time and then go back
to your live tv with out missing anything.
