I don't use a tuner in my PC, but I do use it for movie viewing and Netflix...I can heartily recommend JRiver. I used MediaPortal, then XBMC after that and they are a bit flashier with nicer theater views than JRiver, but in both cases they just weren't up to snuff in usability and lack of stability. I realize JRiver is not free, but it is great software that is constantly evolving. Just my 2 cents.
