I have just read the recommended hardware stuff and a few setups for backend+frontend solutions and I wanted to run it past the community before commit to buying if I may. The system will be recording a digital freeview signal with a view to do DVB-T2 when a TV card is released so the rest of the hardware needs to do HD, also want it to be small and quiet and look good as it will be next to my TV. It will also be plugged into my TV with HDMI most likely.

I think the PSU is included in that case (will 200W be enough?) Its a little steep are their any areas that could be cut down in your experiences? Also does Mythbuntu work well with two recorders, is it fine to browse and watch with one and record with the other out of the box?
Thanks for your help and I look forward to getting setup
Got something that needs fixing? Dont ask me.
