Thanks Lucas, that was exactly what I was looking for. Ive obtained a 
computer to use for this and a PVR-350 card will be on the way shortly, 
what I was wondering is its been a while since I did any development 
work on a linux platform. Which linux distro and  tools are you guys 
using for development, i'd like to stay as close to what you guys are 
using as possible. Ive got a lot of reading about mythTV before I can do 
any coding mind you =D
