For everyone interested, you might want to checkout this spreadsheet of
set-top boxes:


It was started by Veronica Belmont @ Revision3 and is publicly unpalatable.
 From this list I found that the Roku has a few other streaming options:
 * Play On Private Channel
 * Chaneru
 * Main Squeeze
 * Roksbox Private Channel

I'm going to go the Silicondust route and tie it in with my
soon-to-be-reinstalled Myth system.

Any pros/cons on the back-end version of MythTV to use?  Stick with
Mythbuntu, or is Mythdora or one of the other off shoots better supported
