HDHomeRun aka HDHR. It only needs network connectivity, and VMs can access
the network. Most VM types can do USB as well, and the more recent Xen
builds can do PCI passthrough, so even those might work.

I'm using OpenSolaris and Sun's xVM stuff, which is basically a custom build
of Xen. It works great for me, and gives me ZFS for this and other uses.
That server does a lot more than just Myth. :)
