I'm toying with the idea of building a mythtv box. Budget is not as big
as I would like, but what can ya do...
Anyway, I was thinking of getting the PVR-250 (the PVR-350 seems to have
too many problems with the TV-OUT to justify the extra $40-50). What
card do you guys recommend for doing TV-OUT? Also do you think a K6-2
500 Mhz proc is enough (will have 384MB of RAM, maybe 512, not sure what
I have laying around)? The only thing this box will do is act as a
media center (with it's primary objective to be a TV-Recorder, and live
tv). It will connect to a DirecTV receiver (which has a low speed data
Total budget is probably around $500...included in that I need to get
the PVR-250, a card to do TV-OUT and a decent sized hard drive (probably
60 or 80 GB to start with).
