I did setup a MythTV box a while ago... but I think things will have 
moved on a bit since I did it.

At the time, USB DVB-T boxes were quite well supported, not sure about 
the dual receiver ones...

Not sure if the remote control stuff has improved, but I couldn't get it 
working at the time, and it didn't matter anyway - i watched it on the PC.
