I tried mythtv on hardy, after Karls excellent talk in ashford (belated 
thanks for that) ,  I used the parker1 website he recommended to check 
for a well supported tv card and decided on the Nova-T 500 dual.  At the 
time I think it cost around £55, plus a call from the tv licensing 
crew.  It worked perfectly right from the word go. and its yet to crash.

I haven't had any problems with dvd playback, so can't help you much 
with that.

I don't use mythtv for the music so not much help with that one either.

mythtv, combined with mythweb and a mythtvfrontend on my eeepc has 
changed the way I use the telly. The only slight problem I have run into 
is with the remote and lirc, which I need to spend a bit of time on.
