Plextor ConvertX PVR -- MythTV -- Gentoo Linux

I'm gravitating towards a Gentoo distro for my MythTV box ... as Gentoo has the nicest Wiki ;-)

Hardware capture solution of choice (for people like me who want external) appears to be this Plextor ConvertX unit.

Plextor ConvertX PX-TV402U PVR page on Gentoo Wiki.

This one slipped under my PVR hardware radar somehow, as I'd not heard of it before yesterday.

There are two products listed on that Gentoo Wiki page. From what I can deduce through their Amazon listings, one has a better DivX encoding, giving you three times more video. I assume that's agood thing as that unit is $40 more expensive ;-)
