    Hello and Welcome!

    While I've never personally set it up, you should be able to get what you need from just about any modern distro using MythTV.
    Some Linux distributions even have it pre-installed.

    Apparently MythTV installation and setup can be a bit *ahem* arcane so it may be worth considering Mythbuntu which is supposed to be easy.
    What do we want?
    Time machines!

    When do we want 'em?
    Doesn't really matter does it!?

    I'm afraid I have no direct experience of mythbuntu but an ex work colleague swears by it for his media centre needs. Good luck with it
