Is there a solution for HDMI capture to MythTV on Linux?

Seems like this should be answered somewhere, but my searching skills seem to be lacking.

Yes I know about HDCP, but there's stuff like this to deal with it: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B004F9LVXC/

Example use case: Roku box with HDMI-only output, wanting to time shift the streaming channels.

TIA...

Thanks for the reply. That looks promising. Now all I need is a whole lot of free time. :)

The linked device has to be the easiest tunner I've ever setup. But you will need every script he's got in the article. Myth unfortunately does not support a channel change script with IPTV so without the attached scripts (or some of your own) you can't control the box which is providing the HDMI. It's unfortunate that all the requests for a channel change script option for IPTV have been marked as will not do.
