I bought a Dish DVR625 this month. For years, I've been saying that I was going to build a Myth box. Some of the reasons for choosing a "dedicated appliance" were for the reasons you stated (dual tuner).

But, I also considered these Pros:

o Cost
o Familiarity for family (remote controls and menus)
o Tight integration to system means easier recording
o No extra box
o Support
o Built-In streaming to other TV's

I really REALLY wanted to build a Myth box. But, considering everything, I just couldn't justify it.
