MythTV is what I'm using and I like it for the most part.  I think the
biggest headache you will run into is streaming over wireless.  I have
never had any luck with that. You can set buffer requirements on your
players if you don't mind waiting 30+ seconds for your video to play. 
That seems to help, but even then I've had problems.  I found it was
worth running gigabit personally.  If your wireless setup actually does
work just fine, please tell me what equipment you have. ;)  I am using a
54mbps Linksys with a variety of cards like Trendnet and... hmmm...
forgot the rest, but they were all supposed to be great.
