- TV signal will be via antenna, as we do not get cable.
- I plan to put a blu-ray player in this when funds become available
- Do I need a separate video card or will this board’s onboard be sufficient?
- I know nothing about Linux or MythTV, but am planning on going that route for OS and DVR software. Is there a TV Tuner card that works well with those? (ie, drivers)
