I like Myth. Haven't really played with anything else. I have a
fairly simple set up. I'm actually getting my signal off an antenna.
I only have one tuner card, because I don't need to record 2
programs at once. I think there are now tuner card company
makers that have multiple tuners on a pci card. I don't know
if other video card makers have caught up, but the only maker
when I built this box that could do HD was NVidia.
