I've been a Replay guy for years. I have two Showstoppers that I put larger HD's into and that's been getting me by for almost a decade. No monthly charge.... I'm lovin it. After poking around a bit I've decided my best bet might be a HTPC, er two of them actually.
One very nice one which can get HDTV and record the premium stations upstairs and a second one down in the kids area. I have a Pentium III I can use for the kids area and I'm going to use that project as a learning experience for the bigger one... upstairs.
I've read quite a few threads in this forum and I have to admit, its kind of boggling deciding where to begin - Although I can see that Vista may be my best bet. Is there an Idiots guide thread that I'm missing?
One of the problems I see down the road is that the TV upstairs uses a cable card. Hmmm, anyone built anything to accomidate that yet?
Thanks for any help.
