Is the comb filtering a tweakable option or its just there in the
150/500 and not in the 250/350.

This is not an issue, in fact one of the reasons I am building the
second Mythbox is to have one with a full ATX board (instead of the
microatx in my current one).

Plus, this time I am going to go "homegrown" w/ CVS as my current
Mythbox is built on FC2 using Jarod's guide and I want to play with a
new leaner distro and CVS based Myth/drivers/etc without having to
kill my current spousally-adored box.

Is there a way to buy a 150 with the ir port and ir receiver but no
remote? I want to use a third party remote but I'd like the IR port
with the 150. The 150MCE's have no IR port, correct?
