[Durham] MythTV box hardware recommendations

Does anyone have experience setting up a MythTV box?
My idea is to build something more flexible than the usual DVD recorder
which will fit in the space behind the TV (so, not a full-sixed PC case!)
I am thinking something like the ACER REVO R3600 (which has wifi and HDMI)
with a USB dvd recorder (for copying to DVD disks) and a duel USB DVB-T tuner
with remote control.
Since I will be just recording and replaying DVB streams, I assume I won't
need a lot of CPU power (no recoding needed: at least, not in real time).
What are your recommendations?
