I’ve wanted one for quite a few years now. I’ve really wanted one since I got my Jetway MiniQ case about 2 years ago – almost to the day. Now I finally got all the necessary parts today and put it together. If Jetway was still selling the MiniQ (it’s discontinued) I would DEFINITELY recommend AGAINST using them for a MythTV setup. The Hauppauge PVR-500 just barely fit in there. In fact, I had to move a badly placed capacitor slightly out of the way to fit the card in. I also had to remove the DVD burner (temp for the installation) and unplug the hard drive. But I finally got it up and running.
Then it took me about an hour of fiddling around with Mythdora to get it to work. Now I have all the MythTV awesomeness! I’m so excited – I have been waiting for this day to come. Now I just need to think of something to record! Also, I need to figure out how to make the supplied remote control work. That should be trivial – I hope.
