If you are interested in recording over the air (OTA) TV programming, then
you will probably be interested in HDTV.

As far as shopping for computer to serve as a MythTV system, pretty much any
system for sale today will be adequate, but you will probably need to add a
TV tuner card (or purchase an HDHomerun, which will tune TV signals and
stream them over a network connection to a myth system), a remote control,
and possibly a video card.

As for specifics, check out the list archives, they contain a wealth of
information on this topic.
