Dreamix is vaporware, furthermore, the people who claim to be making it
are making a 'custom ethernet tuner device' that will sell for 'around $100'
which means that they're in it for the money. Considering a $40-something
USB tuner, or an open source mythtv frontend would do just fine I don't
consider dreamix a viable solution to anything. The only proof that anything
is happening is some "screenshots" on the sourceforge site they registered,
unfortunately all of those images were created in photoshop, not from

There are various Linux hardware video compression devices available, at
the moment mythtv only supports the PCI mjpeg cards.

mythtv on it.
