It's the best. I have been using it since Sept-Oct 2003 (IIRC it used to be 0.17 then) and I have no problem at all with this piece of software.
I've heard about MythTV for so long and was dying to try it out. My current desktop is not the quickest (800 mhz PIII) so I decided to get a capture card that would do mpeg2 encoding on the fly (doesn't kill the CPU). I wound up getting the Hauppauge WinTV PVR350 card. I tried installing via KnoppMyth but had some problems. I heard good things regarding Jarod Wilsons fedora2 how-to decided to give it a shot. It installed without any major issues. MythTV is great. I can do what tivo does (record a live show, pause a live show, schedule recordings) and much more. You can rip CD's and DVD's, browse internet sites, read RSS newsfeeds, manage your system remotely (schedule shows & delete programs) and play old school video games via xmame. If you have a DVD burner you also burn your recordings. Another great thing is that because it runs on linux it supports all the different codecs. MythTV simply rocks!
I plan on building a dedicated MythTV box very soon for my home entertainment system using a mini-atx box.
