mythtv *is* PVR software (programmable video recorder), it is also DVR
software (digital video recorder).
And yes, you can buy commercial ones for less. But you also generally
have to pay monthly fees to the provider for your listings, and rarely
get the ability to export your recordings, etc.
Mythtv isn't really about being cheaper (it really only is if you
already own the hardware), it's about having control over what you do
with your recordings.
