Debian for the backends and frontend.  One is highly modified, running X
from git and bleeding edge nvidia drivers.

The other is stock debian lenny with myth from trunk.

A laptop and desktop running a separate myth installation using ubuntu
with myth trunk.  The desktop is also running X from git.

(Lots of improvements in latest X. Between bleeding edge X and bleeding
edge nvidia and myth, the image is visibly better.)
