PVR Box for MythTV Linux Development with HDMI in, HDMI out

I am looking for an HDMI passthrough PVR device for a custom MythTV implementation I wrote. It is based in Linux.

I need a box with an HDMI in and HDMI out. Unlike most PVR devices, I do not want a tuner.

I am struggling to find a development platform. Most PVR boxes rely on a tuner for input. Any ideas on where I could find such a box, and one that would allow for development as well? The easy method, of course, is to get a small headless Linux box, which I have done. I am actually looking to develop on a dedicated set-top box, however.

Thank you,
Joseph Irvine

Very interesting, thanks for finding that. The hardware specs match with HDMI in, HDMI out. I will follow up with them as I do have a concern over the disclaimer that they don't support HDCP encryption. That is so prevalent now that many TVs won't even display the signal if it is missing the HDCP layer.

Good find though, thanks. If you spot any more, please let me know. I am trying to gather a handful of potential candidates.
