Build Your Own PVR

What's a PVR you ask. Oh it's simple, its a Personal Video Recorder. Thats right kiddies you can build your own TIVO without the monthly payments. The PVR uses open source programs like MythTV. Although, there are others out there on the net. Couple the software, with some minimum computer parts, which you may already have lying around the house, and you too can record the lost episodes of Little House. Here are some links to building it, as well as building a HTPC (Home Theatre PC's).
