I don't know if I missed the email - but ATI's Linux support in the past has been sketchy..

So for at least 6 years (that I can think of), nVidia has been the card to get for Myth.

Again, I run KnoppMyth (not LinHES) from mysettopbox.tv and with the right hardware
it installs up off a single CD line an appliance - ready to go...

One of these days, I'll see about setting it up on a CentOS server I have running that I'd like to centralize against.
But we'll see. So many options, so little time. I love FOSS.
