I would guess that when the PC is delivered, the PVR will function as well as a dedicated PVR like Replay or Tivo.
However, once you install a few applications, and once the PC is infected with various spyware and viruses, that the PVR will cease to perform flawlessly. It is running Windows, after all, which is totally insecure and vulnerable to attack.
The advantage of Replay and Tivo is that it is more of a "sealed" appliance. Few people attempt to install or modify the software. There are no known viruses or spyware for them (except for the manufacturers' spyware).
