A couple key factors come into play when comparing a MythTV setup to a 
TiVo:

1) Do you already have the hardware to build a MythTV?

This project will be considerably cheaper than TiVo if you already 
have the hardware lying around.

2) Do you plan on keeping your PVR around more than a couple years?

MythTV will be cheaper than TiVo even with a lifetime subscription if 
you're in it for the super-long term.
