If you want to build on the work EFF has done, we just released a 
"Cookbook"  describing step-by-step setup of MythTV for U.S. HDTV, 
with KnoppMyth and the pcHDTV HD-3000 card. 

We're encouraging people to build HDTV PVRs before the broadcast flag 
outlaws manufacture of the tuners, and found that KnoppMyth offered 
an easy and full-featured way to get there.

We'd be happy to see this document expanded to cover more of the 
surrounding features of MythTV.
