Ah, MythTV! Wondered when that would be a factor in choosing a media client.
You may want to add the:
Galaxy 3500 IPTV which can interface with mythtv's upnp interface out of the box! The audio upnp server on mythtv in broken and only fixed in the SVN version so those of us who just down load the mythtv binaries will have to wait a bit.
Happauge's (spelling?) MediaMVP is another low cost alternative. I don't know if the OEM software will work with MythTV. But the open source version will! Get the open source binaries and all the info you can handle at:www.mvpmc.org
...actually, you might list the MediaMVP with it's own software and the MediaMVP running MVPMC as two entries. That's because the MVPMC.ORG code running on the MediaMVP will support:
MythTV (native, not the UPNP interface)
ReplayTV - yes, the SonicBlue PVR.
(For that matter, probably DVArchive as well (software version of ReplayTV))
Slimserver (see www.slimdevices.com
Note, I don't think MediaMVP has the necessary bandwidth to handle HD and doesn't have HD type output. Where as, the Galaxy can handle HD and probably can produce HD video output.
