[PLUG] Myth TV, computer hardware store, and TV & internet service

Hi there!

Has anybody here recently set up a Myth TV box? I just moved to the south-west 
side of center city and am planing to set one up at my place. I'm a bit 
overwhelmed by all the options (especially but not only on the hardware side) 
and would like to take a look at other peoples' setups. I saw the slides to 
the Myth TV presentation at a past PLUG meeting. I'd like to custom build the 
computer, install Kubuntu on it and then put Myth TV on it to serve as both a 
server for other frontends on the network but also a frontend. Also, is there 
a good computer hardware store that can be reached from Philly without a car? 
(If not, what's the clostest computer hardware store you can recommend?)

I currently have Comcast cable for TV and high-speed internet, but am 
wondering if there might be better options (so far I've only identified 
Verizon and Speakeasy DSL as possible internet alternatives). I'd appreciate 
hearing your experiences. I've also read on some of the Myth TV 
documentations that with the right satellite setup one can receive quite a 
few unencrypted (international) channels. Does anybody here have any 
experience with that?
