What is a good PVR program for Linux? Answered

While I'm asking Linux questions, what is a good strong firewall for Linux? I need one for a computer I'm using as a firewall to my router.

MythTV  is the best free open source program I have seen.  The site has all the information you need to get started and there are plenty of others available out there with a google search.

IPCOP is a good Linux firewall, easy to configure and has a lot of extra features you don't usually find on free packages.
