[mythtv] Crazy Question?

The question is can Linux that running on Tivo or Replay take advantage 
of the hardware  that is on these machines? If not, you're just using a 
50Mhz PPC (or whatever Replay uses) to make a software PVR.

What about XBox Linux?  That would certainly have the specs.  Could a 
USB Video For Linux compatible tuner be used?  That might be the 
solution for this.  With reports that Microsoft loses money on XBoxes, 
you could actually kill 2 birds with 1 stone by running MythTV on an 
XBox.
