Long time reader, first time poster...

I have a TivoHD that has all the shows I want.

I want a HTPC for a different room because I'm too cheap to buy another Tivo subscription and use MRV.

I want to easily transfer/stream my TivoHD shows over MRV to this HTPC. It's the only thing I'll use the HTPC for (no OTA recording, etc.) It would also be nice to have a decent remote control and an easy GUI for this. I realize I could set up a full-tilt system to record all my shows on the HTPC, but that just seems so redundant and I hate messing with cablecards and stuff like that.

Which HTPC platform would people recommend? I'm seeking something simple because I'm intimidated by Linux command-lines...
