[mythtv] MythTV PC - Any warnings?

I councurr with you. Should work fine, but maybe the sound will give you
problems. You can go and check the www.alsa-project.com hardware database.
They have nice howto for every specific soundcard/chipset.
I have tried 3 sound cards with myth/alsa: an AC'97, an i815/nForce and a
SB Live and the two first worked better for me than the SB Live.
Another thing you are going to need: patience! The amount of dependencies is
terrible...but is well worth it!
