Hey there, I've been googling and reading forums but I need some direction from some of you experienced guys and gals.
My main goal is to create a DVR/PVR system to record OTA tv shows and watch them at my leisure. It seems that there are so many ways to go and I don't know where to begin. It seems like all I really need is a PC, TV tuner card, hard drive and WMC.
I was just looking at a Foxconn Booksize Barebone System on Newegg, and the size, power consumption, noise level looks really good, but I don't know how I would hook up my coax cable coming from my antenna.
My current setup has my antenna signal coming straight in to my Panasonic plasma tv. I have a Onkyo ht6300 sound system and stream netflix and watch movies thru a samsung bluray.
Any help would be appreciated from a middle aged htpc newbie.
Lastly, not sure I'd want to, but I have an old dell desktop - xp, 2.2ghz amd athlon 64x2 dual core, would I be able to use this for an htpc?
