The predecessor to LinHES is KnoppMyth. As its name implies, the initial releases of KnoppMyth were based on Knoppix, but the latest incarnations are not, although the brand-name "KnoppMyth" has been retained. From the KnoppMyth Wiki :
"Knoppix itself is an adaptation of the Debian Linux distribution, Knoppmyth therefore is another project that has spiralled off into its own domain. These days it would be more correct to call KnoppMyth a specialized and heavily customized Debian derivative, as there is very little Knoppix left."
The first release of KnoppMyth was on 08-Aug-2003 (R1) and was based on MythTV 0.10. The last stable incarnation of KnoppMyth is R5.5 which was released on 06-Jul-2008 and is based on MythTV 0.21-fixes. The first release of LinHES (R6) was released on the 26-Sept-2009 with version R6.01.00.
Both LinHES and KnoppMyth can be installed and function on almost any "modern" computer. See the Required Hardware page for more info.
Development on KnoppMyth has halted and all efforts are focusing on LinHES. That said, KnoppMyth R5.5 is still a very robust MythTV distribution.
