That is what I am moving to.  Get a crap PVR from TimeWarner that works ,
then use my mythbox as experimental.

That is also what I expected.  You can't do as much in those units, at least
not in a nice integrated package.  Myth is like 90% of where I need it to be
for the wife to accept it (she wants PIP??)

My HD card looks great in Myth, the SD 500 card is a turd even with the
driver fixes.  And I don't have lots of slots to use.   Maybe I send back my
500 and trade out to two 150s?  I assume they don't have the same crap
quality of the 500 right now.  But apparently the 500 is a software problem,
so I can't even really justify a return.  Why did they have to screw us by
change the hardware?  Idiots.
