Myth presently supports the Plextor Convert-X, which can also be used  
with EyeTV. If you are talking about El Gato's own hardware device I  
have not heard anything about Myth support for that device.

I use a Plextor with EyeTV and it works great, the only device I know  
of that will do hardware MPEG-4 encoding. I have used the Plextor  
with Myth in the past and it worked well, though the Myth support is  
limited to using mpeg-4 encoding, even though the device can do mpeg-2.
