i have dabbled a little with this myself.
i used mythdora, as everything was compiled in etc etc.
knoppmyth was also another distro, but the last time i looked at either,
knoppmyth was slightly behind on the myth versions number, .18 i think
and mythdora was.20
a hauppage PVR-150 (not mce) card should suffice for the time being.
i got an MCE edition card, and while it works fine the remote does not.
i was using a crappy p31ghz i had laying around, and it was able to
encode and pause fwd rwd etc without much hassle.
i used the second scart output from my sky box to an svideo input on the
PVR-150 and audio as well.
as i said it worked fine, but as i never could get the remote to work
properly, i have kind of put it on the back burner for the time being.
