Saw someone else posted one up, and like that person I am going to start a new 
MythTV PVR to record good old Little Einsteins for my 8 month old. 

Here is my current proposed setup: 

ASUS P1-AH2 Barebone system  / NVIDIA 6150 & nForce 430 Onboard Chipset w/ 
Composite / S-Video out etc. 
$185 shipped

AMD AM2 Socket 3800+ 

Hauppauge PVR 150
This may be a tight fit in the case I am looking at, but read some reviews 
they said it gets in there, just takes some creativity .. May have to change 
case later if I decide to go with 2 150's if I want to watch and record..

1GB Ram 
Probably jack from work

Either Jack from work or buy from ebay

SD 6 Months for $15 :o)

OS openSUSE 10.3 (yeah.. I know not released yet, but it's release date is 
10-4-07 and should have everything about then and finally get time.. 

If not openSUSE then most likely Mythbuntu (stupid name)

I hope I am not forgetting anything.. If so.. I'll figure it out later..

Note: When I say jack from work, they are used surplus systems :o)

How much can you know about yourself, you've never been in a fight? I don't 
wanna die without any scars. So come on; hit me
