Ha ha ha... $100 keyspan running off a wallwart... vs a pc with software to
maintain and moving parts to fail.  While I agree that it's nice to be able
to extend the system by adding backends, it's not always the best method.

If the key span works I might invest in one.  It would allow me to put my
USB tuners as close to the antenna as possible and run cat5 to my server...
much like I do now with my HDHR.
