Pros: Easy setup, dual tuner, external from PC, networked, includes all cables to make the connections.
Overall Review: Here is how I setup the HDhomerun on MythTV:
1. Make all connections to the HDhomerun.
2. Run quick setup HDHomerun CD on windows. (this installed the latest firmware on the unit and scanned for the channels)
3. Test everything using the windows "QuickTV" application to view a channel.
4. Run "mythtv-setup" on the mythbackend
5. Add the two tuners as capture cards using the device id to map it.
6. Map the video input source to the new capture cards.
7. Exit mythtv-setup
8. Run mythfilldatabase
9. Start watching TV in MythTV using the hdhomerun tuners.
Took about 30 mins total.
It is the easiest tuner I have setup in MythTV yet. No drivers/firmware required in the linux install.
Cons: Won't pass memtest at the specified speeds. Won't pass when timmings are manually set or when set to auto.
Overall Review: I got the first stick and ran memtest on it and it through errors like crazy. Got a second stick and did the same thing. Stay away form this RAM. And always use memtest to test your new RAM.
Comments: It works like a hard drive. No problems.
Comments: Did the mod to the Lanparty I bought at the end of July. Mod still works great with the latest drivers and the bridge works to.
I opted for the free shipping and it took longer than normal to get it here, oh well.
Comments: Got this board for overclocking, like everyone else. Am running 8x300 1:1 right now with OCZ plat. rev2 and venice 3000+. I modded it to support sli with no problems.
Comments: Happy with the ram for the price. Running 2.5-3-3-2-11 1T @ 200MHz , 2.6v
Comments: The side panel was missing the screws. The front panel tabs were broken. The top had small dents in it. The front had scratches on it. It looked like it was opened already. I am cheap, but this is the last cheap case I buy. Good thing it is only for a server in the closet. But I guess what should I expect for the price.

It is working great right now. Had to flash it first to a modded firmware then to the kiastation.bin . Haven't tried the wireless yet, and not sure if I will anytime soon, I have no wireless devices.
