I toyed around with extending the desktop to the tv, but I know people wont be happy doing that.

I might end up getting another HDTV tuner.
If I got the one that runs on the LAN, would my current HTPC win7 pc then be considered to have 2 tuners?
Plus I could use it upstairs, maybe on the ubuntu pc..
