I've looked at MythTV before, but for one reason or another never set it up. 
  So, I'm looking at it again.  My goal is to demo MythTV using an old 
motherboard I have laying around, and if it does everything I need, replace 
my Tivo (maybe with a backend slave/frontend for a second room).

Anyway, the last time I looked it didn't seem possible (or at least not 
documented) to control a Dish 301 (in room 2 with the Tivo) or a Dish DVR 
508 (my initial target, and almost useless as a DVR).  How difficult is it 
to control the Dish DVR 508 with MythTV, and is it documented anywhere?  
And, what are my options for using a remote with MythTV while using an 
IRBlaster to control the Dish receiver.
