[mythtv-users] USB video input card

I'm considering to buy Acer Revo or similar unit for use with MythTV. It
is interesting that it is actually cheaper to buy a pre-built one rather
than build an NVIDIA OIN based HTPC yourself. However, all these nettops
are missing some crucial (for me) feature - video input. The only option
seems to be to add a USB tuner card (I don't need the tuner, but I could
not find video input cards without one).


Anyway, my question is - are modern NVIDIA ION and Atom based nettops
such as Acer Revo and Asus EEE PC powerful enough to support video
capture via USB along with playback, i.e. timeshifting ?
