if you are a fan of fancy graphs and statistics you will definitely like this.
i love graphs and statistics about aspects of my system.
my preferred tool is cacti.
well, it is not simply a tool, it is a complete framework written in php,perl and mysql.
there are several graphs ready to use and the best thing about it, you could graph almost everything by writing your own data-sources and so on.

if you are not already graphing away i recomment you give it a shot.
since it is possible to easily write your own “plug-ins”, you could as well graph some mythtv stats.
the mythtv database holds information we could use here, the xml output of the backend will come in handy too.
fortunately some genius has already created a little walkthrough and some templates: http://e2r4.com/cacti/mythtv/
looking at his efforts i am sure you can think of many additional items one could graph.
happy graphing!
