MythTv Build - How does it look?

I'm attempting to put together a build for a MythTV frontend/backend. The box will be behind a wall, but close enough where I can run HDMI to my TV. Would this build do the trick (click the link below)?

Everything I'm doing will be HD and I want to be able to record two shows at once while watching a recorded program. Eventually I may add a front end to this so I can access recordings from another TV.

It's possible that I would add another tuner in the future as well.

I also want to be able to play full screen flash from HULU and the like.

Also looking for suggestions for an RF Remote.

Thanks!

    On paper the ecs motherboard looks great, but this board has a higher than average failure rate, and requres another part to get S/PDIF. This board will probably cause you pain. You can take her home, dress her up, but one day she will stop putting out.

    See http://www.linuxtech.net/features/best_linux_htpc_motherboards.html
    to get a list of recommended Linux boards. Download the motherboard manuals of the boards you like and make sure they support wake-on-usb. Not all of them do.

    Be aware that Zotac wireless sucks, so don't let that cloud your decision.
  3. OK. I really can't decide on a motherboard. Should I just go with the Asus M3N78-EM or should I go with a full sized board and just pick up a cheap graphics card?
