A simple cost-benefit analysis question: do you get _enough_ benefit
out of the features of MythTV to make it a worthwhile investment of
time and money? Do you need to be able to record/timeshift TV on more
than 2 tuners and/or make use of multirec? Do you want to be able to
watch content wherever you are in the house? Do you want timestretch
available for playback?

I also have it on good authority that the pitter-patter of tiny feet
can make a Mythbox really come into its own :)
