I am fairly new to the idea of doing an HTPC. I am redoing a basement, and the original plan was to use 3 series3 Tivos.

However, due to recent programming changes on Comcast, cable is looking like less of a desirable option. Therefore, I am exploring the idea of using an HTPC of some sort to run this system. The absolute requirements are:

3 hi-definition tuners

ability to output to 7 different TVs. 6 of the TVs need to be independent and able to watch any one of the tuners (i.e., I don't want TV 1 only being able to watch tuner 1), the 7th TV can be slaved off of another.

one TV needs to be HDMI, and with 7.1 surround sound. All other TVs can be component and do not need surround sound

Has anyone set up something like this before? What was required? I'm hoping to keep the hardware budget around $10k-$15k (excluding TVs).

Thank you for any help or advice you can provide.
