No my machine is internal, and while I do have port forwards on to
access it from outside, all in all it's all in my "home" network. No
security issues as such.

Thanks for the heads up. Although I have been off Xfinity (Cable) for a
year now, on DirecTV so no recordings since a year. Only Music, Videos and
Pictures. All backed up, so the only worst case scenario will be the
"system" - not the data. . Every 6-8 months I feel the itch to "do
something". Not natively a Linux guy, I love the fact that there are tons
of options - and even though I may not need one, I enjoy doing it.

Ironically though, not being a core Linux guy, I am not able to always
troubleshoot my way out of the screw-ups so while I love doing something
new, I worry about losing my system especially when I feel I don't really
have an absolute need for it. That's why I was wondering if Myth has any
significant updates - I am desperately waiting for the H265 that may be
coming with the myth version of ffmpeg.
