You might join efforts with other sites, IMHO:

 - a place where you can buy working MythTV setups and off coarse get a
suggestion on how to DIY one.

 - this guy is working on intergrating DVD in MythTV (isn't it?). Could
become a 'unstable' (you get the jargon) development site?

 - global hardware info, wiki, reviews, link site. Pretty much a
newbie/user community. Not only about MythTV. And don't forget that there
are other people outside America, please.

:-)  OR  :-(  ?

btw, take a look at eBoxy, not a really great system, but the guy has done
lots of investigation around the net and put everything on his homepage
(yup MythTV is also mentioned ;-). If only he had put it in a less
"academic style" it would have been great.

I found out that there are plenty of other PVR (or at least video) related
OpenSource projects on the internet. A couple of them are even in a state
like MythTV (usable, but still developping).
