Does anyone have any experience or suggestions on how to build a Personal Video Recorder using pc equipment? I am not interested in the program downloading capability, but I would like to be able to record/watch in real time, pause live action etc.
I figure if the PVR is just a big fast hard drive, I should be able to build one myself. I don't want to have my PVR communicating with Big Brother, and my understanding is that OEM DVRs will not work if they are not in regular contact with the mother ship.
All I want is for all the programs I watch to be in HD. Seems reasonable to me :)
