Thanks, that's very good to know.  I've been running Myth under various
linuces for a while; after failure to get anything working in FreeBSD in
early 2006, I settled on Knopp R5C7 last spring, with good success on a
Dell Precision-something workstation (2GHz P4) and a generic NV17.  The
only problems I had were MythTV-specific and easily solved.

I'll try the FreeBSD option as soon as I pick up an additional disk.  :)
