I've got two PVR-250s in my Pundit.  No problems.  You'll see what
everyone is talking about when they say they're bending the case a
little.  It's no big deal and you really won't have any issues.  I'm
running SuSE 9.0 on it for MythTV.  No sound or driver issues here, with
any of the onboard devices.

Congratulations.  You've just taken your first step into a much larger

Hello to All:

I'm in the process of setting up mythtv on my current computer. I've
allready ordered the PVR-350.

I was initially going to be reasonable and set everything up on my
desktop to make sure it was working before I went out and splurged on a
new dedicate system. BUT... in the process of setup, reading, etc I've
gotten myself too excited about all the awesome features of myth (I'm
currently an avid TiVo user/fan.. but this story has convinced me it's
time to eBay the TiVo and move to Myth: 
) . To heck with reasonable, I'm going to splurge.

I have my eyes on the Pundit-R... I heard someone comment that the
PVR-250 "barely" fit into their pundit system. I noticed the 350 is a
bit longer! Does anyone here have a Pundit-R with a 350? I'm just
looking for confirmation that it will fit before I order the case.

I'd also be interested to hear any other recomendations for a sleek,
small case (with two PCI slots)-- or any other hardware recomendations. 
I heard this site was a good place to go for hardware setups
http://pvrhw.goldfish.org/tiki-pvrhwdb.php .... but it doesn't seem to

Thanks in Advance,
