[mythtv-users] OT: cheap tuner / remote combo?

Just noticed that Fry's has the Nero Liquid TV / Tivo PC package on sale for 
$60.  I'm not suggesting that anyone should run Tivo rather than MythTV, but 
the package includes a Hauppauge HVR-950Q (w/ all cables) and a USB 
transceiver (receiver and blaster) with DVR remote.  I know that the HVR-950Q 
is supported in Linux, not sure about the transceiver.

There is an unpacking list with pictures here:


And the LinuxTV shows support for the HVR-950Q.  It even comes with 12 months 
of Tivo data (not sure if it can be used in Linux).  I guess at a minimum 
playing with the Liquid TV app with Tivo data could be interesting for a year.  
The price of a tuner, remote and transceiver would be more than $60 
separately.  If the remote is supported by Linux it seems like a good deal.  
Anyone have any experience with this hardware?
