[mythtv-users] Direct TV and HD with Myth TV

The only thing I've seen are mods for the DirecTV HD receivers.
http://www.nextcomwireless.com/R5000/sales.htm seems to be the "cheaper" of
two and from what I read, more reliable. I can't stomach spending $700 on
that and then having to stream it thru an XP machine to Myth, so I haven't
made the jump.... YET.... But it sure would be nice! Especially if there
were Linux drivers for it.
