Hey all,

I am looking for some input on a PC PVR/Multimedia system i am building for a friend.

I am planning on using Snapstream Video software, but am having trouble deciding on a Tuner card. I need to have a DVI port to hook into a 50" Sony Grand Wega XBR rear projection TV. I liked the capabilties of the Hauppauge WinTV-PVR-350 for the hardware encoding-decoding, but it will not support the streaming server to other machines. The ATI All-in-wonder 9600 pro will stream but doesn't have a DVI connector.

Here is a little info on what I am trying to do.

Project overview:
Multimedia PC to play games, perform fulltime PVR, serve MP3's to household, do PC Karaoke, transfer DV from camera to DVD and slideshow digital pictures.

Decided hardware so far-
Pentium4C 2.6GHz 800MhzFSB
2x Kingston HyperX DDR400 512MB = 1GB Dual channel mode
Asus P4C800-E Deluxe motherboard
2x Western Digital Special edition 250GB SATA hard drives = 500GB Raid0
Sony 4x DVD+/-RW
internal USB2.0 Card reader
Sound Blaster Audigy2 ZS Platinum Pro

Any input into other choices for cards would be much appreciated.
