Perhaps this is stating the obvious, but I'd head over to the MythTV
Users list archives and do some data mining in the postings from the
last 6 months. Front-end and back-end hardware recommendations is a
perpetual topic there.

Pick something that you see multiple people both recommending and
claiming to have successfully used themselves.

As long as you don't have some out-of-the-mainstream needs, this should
lead you to a working solution. While DVR usage may be tailing off, the
MythTV Users list is still high volume, and presumably still has a
sizable user base, so there's no reason why you should need to be a
pioneer with new hardware, unless that's something you want to do.
