I know this has been asked before, but it looks like its been a few months so I'm going to ask again to see if there's some more up-to-date information.

I'm just about to dive into mythbuntu and I need some recommendations on great hardware combinations. Here are my requirements:

S-Video out to TV (plus DVI for when I get a better TV)
1 hard disk drive
nice looking set-top style case
wifi interface
possibity of adding a digital tv tuner down the road
quiet
and last but certainly not least... cheap

this is for one tv server/client combined setup, I'm mainly going to watch online video streams and play content from the drive or another dvd/blu ray player.

so whatcha got?
