So I'm going to take the plunge and build a MythTV box for a Christmas 
project, er, present, and given that the only spare hardware I've got 
lying around was bought sometime in the last millenium, I'm planning to 
go to the local computer fair and get a new rig.  My plan is your 
typical "media center" machine, headless except for the TV out, with one 
or two big fat hard drives for TV and music.

It sounds like many posters here have had good luck with Athlon 1800s so 
I may go that route.  Anyone have any preferences they'd like to share 
for MoBos?

Also, is the Hauppage WinTV the best value card out there, or is there 
something else from ATI that's good?

Apologies for the newbie questions, but consider mine a mind to be molded.

And, out of curiosity, what's the highest quality setting (resolution) 
that MythTV will try to record at?

I'm totally blown away by the screenshots... props to Isaac and everyone 
else who has worked on this thing.
