Does myth handle putting the drive and HTPC to sleep and waking it for recordings well? I would be mostly recording TV when I'm not around, then watching it later (hence the username HDTimeshifter when I signed up here back in 2003). My Comcast Motorola DVR keeps the disk spinning 24x7 even when it is off. My main Ubuntu PC handles going to sleep well and there is only a small delay (less than 1/2 minute - maybe 15 seconds) waking up. In fact, I even have my Ubuntu file server (that I mainly use for remote backup of files) go to sleep after an hour (it's more of a pain since I have to walk down to the basement to wake it up, but I figure the power savings are worth it). Btw, I don't know if I mentioned it, but my HTPC will be both front end and back end (probably obvious with a 2TB drive for media). I also have thoughts of being able to stream recordings from it (in my living room) across my wired network to my main Ubuntu PC upstairs, but that would be a more rare occurrence with a TV and free Comcast digital decoder in that room as well.
