Never used either. Have done a little research and
saw beyondtv as an option. I will look deeper into sagetv.
I use two hard drives for each OS. One for
windblows, one for ubuntu which has a bootloader that can boot other hard
drives. Its soo cool that this can be done. If for some reason I
have to take the ubuntu hard drive out or it crashes the bios will choose the
second hard drive which still contains windblows bootloader! I have done
the single hard drive thing before but there are too many things to go
wrong such as partitioning, compression, reallocation of files, defragging, yada
yada yada. Since I don't know Linux all that well I experiment with it a
lot to the point where I have to rewrite my hard drive. Makes it very
convient having both OS separate.

Might I ask what kind of SD
tuner cards you have? It's looking and more like I won't be able to find
one card that does both digital and analog. That is unless anyone else
throws out a suggestion.
In regards to the video card, I checked the
Nvidia website and they do have Linux drivers. So I think I'm good
there. Unfortunately, this means I probably won't be able to get away
with a mobo that has integrated graphics. Since my mythbox is not going
to be for gaming I was hoping to avoid an extra card inside the computer and
the associate power consumption and loss of air flow.
particular reason you suggested BeyondTV over SageTV. I've test drove
the Win 7 media center and it seems pretty good for a built in media
How would you transition to Linux? I'm envisioning some
type of dual boot system. Does Win 7 have the same boot loader as
