All,  (Hi - I'm new to the list)

I thought I'd mention another option.  I was a long time MythTV user and
I've switched over to just running Ubuntu on a PC connected to my 46"
display.  I use a RF keyboard/mouse.  I use Ted and Ktorrent to download TV
episodes and I like it quite a lot.  Ted is a java applet that searches the
torrent sites for TV shows and keeps track of what episodes it has
downloaded.  I prefer it over the MythTv option because I can watch TV shows
plus I have a full desktop in the living room.
