Is this possible? 

I'm looking at some inexpensive mjpeg encoders which
have v4l support and was wondering if this can be made
to work with MythTV. (iomega buz for example)

I'm not sure how the mjpeg software decoders are, but
usually encoding is the expensive part.. I'd like to
try to get mythtv running on a p2 dual celeron 330 (or
overclocked to 500) with playback during recording,
and hopefully for dvds as well.

Buying hardware for this project isn't something i
want to do since tivo's are so cheap now anyways.
