XBMC ! Best HTPC software ever! I have gotten so many positive feedback & comments for my HTPC setup with XBMC running on top of Slackware64!

I also have MythTV installed but havent had a chance to use it too much..

Media Tomb! Works great on Linux - serves up Movies to the Sony Bravia sets just fine!

To be honest I haven't used any and didn't know much about it.
I'm sure gonna start trying each of them.
Sure I'm getting chance to learn so many things since I joined LQ

LQ is best.

I voted for MythTV because it's what I have used. Having said that, I've also seen XBMC on a few occasions at friends' places and it seems to do it's thing quite nicely.

Slackermedia ?

There is another alternative - Slackermedia. I would vote for this if it were on the list. See http://slackermedia.info/

XBMC

XBMC.
Will hopefully find a new home on a Raspberry Pi in the near future.

MythTV for recording DVB-T.
