i'm currently using the Chaintech 7NIF2 mobo
which works great.  the only beef i have with it is that SPDIF support
was discontinued right before i bought this board.  so if you want to
be able to hook your MythBox up to a stereo receiver and listen to 5.1
audio you're out of luck. :(  but i'm sure Chaintech has a newer model
that supports SPDIF.  also look at Asus, ABit, Gigabyte...  you may
find other models mentioned in the archives or KnoppMyth forum
(although that's easier said than done...).
if you find a mobo you think you'd like to try, you can check the
KnoppMyth forums to see if anyone is using that model successfully. 
look under the Tier 1 topic or just search the forum.
