I understand tweaks are needed to get support into MythTV for the 
HD-PVR.  But IIRC some people have reported the latest MPlayer will play 
the sample files from the HD-PVR.  I was curious if anyone had tried 
that with the AppleTV.

I too have an HD-PVR sitting in the box waiting for the drivers.  It 
will do amazing things for the WAF, if and when it functions as 
advertised.  An AppleTV as a silent, small, and attractive front end 
will do even more.
