Thanks for the information, and the advice.  I am guilty of over
analyzing technical issues.  Such is my nature.  But I've found that,
once I understand the nature of a problem, the solution is quite
obvious.  In this case, the "problem" I've been analyzing has been
somewhat nebulous... but ultimately boils down to "If I'm gonna build
a MythTV system, I'd really like to do it right on the first try."
But that opens up its own set of issues, specifically in the are of
defining what I mean by "right".  In my case, I've decided that it
means "best performance for the lowest power", which opens up its own
set of issues, ... :-)

I truly appreciate the time folks have spent answering my questions.
It is clear that you are all quite knowledgeable about these systems.
So I take advantage of that.

Thanks again.
