We appreciate your interest.

As for LinuxMCE, it is a lot more than MythTV. It also controls every aspect of your house. I would suggest watching the demonstration video linked to from the main site, first...to see if the wide feature set of LinuxMCE (and Pluto) are what you want, or if you want to just install a  pure MythTV based environment.
