Yes, that is all that I get on my Dell laptop, with the Intel graphics.

In my area, some of the digital channels are not broadcasting a HDTV signal. They are broadcasting a digital SD picture. I can watch these stations with the Intel graphics, because it is not a HD picture.

The digital SD stations are usually the low power or independent ones. Sometime a second channel besides the main HD one (multicasting). Also, I understand many PBS stations are multicasting, Here in the Milwaukee market the PBS digital signal has EIGHT channels!

I'm glad you tempered your impatient nature long enough to get it figured out. Now you have even more to look forward to.

Waterhead, is there some reason you know of that the nVidia 6150 is better for Mythtv than the 6100 series? I ask because there are many more options available with 6100.

I only got the 6150 because of recommendations from the AVS Forums - Linux HTPC site. Since you seem to have gotten your setup problems worked out, try asking hardware questions at that site. There are some very knowledgeable posters there.

Will do. For what it's worth here's what I've come up with. Let me know if you see any problems or have any suggestions (note I already have a HDD):
ASUS P1-AH2 Barebones System
AMD Athlon X2 BE-2400 Brisbane 2.3GHz Socket AM2 45W Dual-Core Processor
A-DATA 2GB (2 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400)
SAMSUNG 20X DVD±R DVD Burner
Finally it seems like the MCEUSB2 remote is the most consistently supported in Mythbuntu but I see a lot of MCE remotes out there. Do you have a link to where to buy one of these or a better suggestion?

Hardware choices can be a very individual thing. I don't see anything wrong with your choices.

NewEgg has the MCE remote HERE. You may as well get everything at one place, to save on shipping costs.

Take a look at the NewEgg open-box items. If you feel like taking a little chance, there are some deals. That is where I got my MCE remote, and it works fine.

Here's the CPU's Open-Box CPU's

There are other open box items besides CPU's.

I thought it was that one. Just wanted to be sure. Thanks.
