This is plugged into a shuttle XPC machine's onboard firewire.  I would
not be surprised if that was part of the problem.

That machine is pretty loud, so we had been considering switching to
something quieter, like one of the Eden-based boxes with no fans.

Has anyone tried mythtv with these boxes?  Are they capable of handling
the encoding/decoding?  Ideally it would be capable of handling HDTV.  Any
