Windows Media Center

Should we ditch Tivo? We have to pay 12.95/month for Tivo, and Tivo doesn't record HD signals. If we build a WMCE pc, we get all of tivo's features, no monthly fee, and HD recording, not to mention easy Hard drive size upgrades. There is a limit on the Tivo of like 256GB, the limit on WMCE is like 3 TB or something like that.

Here's an article describing it: ExtremeTech Article

Here's a review of WMCE: PC Magazine Review

Oh yeah, one important point to remember is that I get WMCE with my action pack subscription, so the OS is free.
