If the whole DLNA thing just works fine, it would be great to use the 
PS3 as a frontend, and just keep mythbackend on a server in the garage 
somewhere. It's much easier to run mythbackend on an existing system, 
than building a dedicated machine that can run mythfrontend and is 
connected to an HD screen.

A cheap old PC in a closet running mythbackend, a network-based tuner 
such as the HDHomeRun, and a nifty frontend such as the PS3 - sounds 
like the ideal combination to me.
