Thanks for the great overview of the MAG.  It is extremely helpful to get a
relevant (to MythTV) review of the device before I buy it.  The heat issue
is slightly concerning, but I guess as long as it works it shouldn't be a
big issue.

I will give it a shot as well and see how things go for me.

Thanks again.
