You know if the PS3 had a built in Video Capture or at least a PCI slot or two for a nice internal Hauppage card(s) it'd be worth getting just for a MythTV/SageTV Linux box...

It'd be great for it too considering there really isn't any good out of the box hardware that is capable, affordable, and good looking enough to fit that bill... but alas

Would a USB TV Card not work? I believe even Hauppage makes one.
