Fantastic.  And to answer the other post, the database/OS/everything
else runs on the EIDE drive/channel, so they are seperated :)  The myth
drive serves only for myth and general, residual storage for content
that is either in "deep freeze" or to stream.

Thanks again!  Looks like I just have to convince the wife to let me buy
the tuner :)
