HDTV receiver and network device

I’ve been working for a while towards getting my home into the HDTV age. HD is a much sweeter picture than standard definition TV. The problem is, it’s expensive. HDTV sets are expensive. Fortunately, most computer monitors are HD capable. The challenge with computers is to get an HD receiver. Now I have found HDHomeRun… a standalone receiver that can accept two different input sources, and output the signal over a standard home network. With built in Linux support, this look like a good choice for me, and the price is in the affordable range of $150-200. It comes with instructions for setting up MythTV (think Tivo), so I never need to fiddle with a VCR again. And no monthly Tivo fees.
