I don't have a homerun...

But to set up a Linux myth box is very very very easy these days.

Install say Fedora from DVD takes maybe 30 minutes.
configure rpmfusion repo from web takes maybe 5 minutes
install myth from rpmfusion repo takes maybe 10 minutes
configure setup takes maybe 30 minutes

say 90 minutes all in to allow for any issues.

if you don't have a pci slot use a usb dual tuner
