Need to decide which distro to base the system on

- Raspbian: Probably has the best selection of packages in the repos, but might be a little heavy
- PiDora: Close second on packages, but again may be a liitle heavy
- Gentoo: can be made much more lightweight, but might have difficulty finding some packages (though maybe not)

From the perspective of Freesat support, looks like Raspbian with TVHeadend is probably the best bet -
For the initial build going with Raspbian. Will revisit that decision later if it looks like it'll improve performance by a noticeable amount.
