as others have mentioned there are a couple Pluto threads floating
around.  one turn off is that the bluetooth phone has to be a Symbian
OS phone i believe.  that limits your choices a bit.  Pluto's MythTv
functionality is a watered down version of Myth.  both of those
statements are hearsay, i 'believe' i read them in other posts or on
some other forum as i've never played with Pluto myself.  although i
have checked out their website and if i had the time and money, would
play around with it. :)

good luck with the house.  i'd love more details/updates. :)
