Does anyone run Slimserver on the same box as MythTV?

I'm in the process of ripping all my cd's (this may take a while to do all
660+) and want to put together a dedicated MythTV (http://www.mythtv.org)
backend and slimserver box. Any reason why this might not wok out?

I wouldn't expect MythTV to hog the processor as it won't be doing any
actually video encoding, just streaming MPEG-2 to and from disk

I'm in the process of contemplating the same thing, so
I'd be very interested in your findings, but it's going
to be a month or so before I get round to trying it.
(Too many other things to sort out first.)

Cheers,
Mark.
