So on my recent vacation i visited a friend who i had sold my old projector too, and he introduced me to myth in person ... and all i can say is ... THAT BASTARD ! Cause now i'm hooked ! I recently setup a full myth system at home ... it took me a few day's but i thought i'd detail it out for those contemplating the leap ...

After 2 weeks, i'm getting into it quite a bit ... and the major thing i've noted is the CPU horsepower required for commercial flagging. I have been watching my shows a day late to allow for the commercial flagging to complete on all my shows before i go to watch them. It's raw CPU for the logo detection and the analasys. And all i can say for those venturing into HD PVR. HD streams are HUGE .... I though 600G would cover me, but i can easily record 40G / day. I wanted to be able to keep 1 season of my favorite shows, but it doesn't look like i'll be able.

Thanks to all that have posted this is by far the best addition to my theatre !
