Alright I want to build a Home Theater box.. I have an idea for part's and was going to go mATX or take my old 939 Chipset and slap it into one of those HTPC Case's. This is what I'm trying to accomplish. First thing is it's going to be my DVR, so I need a HDTV tuner card (Any recommendation's would be great on this...I've found some but I didn't like the prices..has to be 1080p). I also want it with Hi-Def audio, which i believe my board has a SPDIF out so i should be fine with that..I think its 7.1 or 5.1 audio on it (Can't remember at work right now). The main goal...Keep basic cable and watch Hulu and any other TV/Web based TV show through the Vista Media Center, and record shows. (Or another type of Media Center, Possibly Windows Home Server?) I have never done this before and I have some questions: How do I setup a TV Guide on the HTPC? Do I still need Basic cable, or can I use Digital Ear's to pick up HDTV and record those shows, like on Fox ect? If I get a TV Tuner card, and have an internet connection only with no cable, can I get Live TV through either Vista Media Center, or a website that is linked to the Media center? How does power management work, I don't want this thing cranking 24/7 while I'm not home, and I would still like my show's to record, can i set it up to act as a DVR in a low power state? What is the best way to hook this up...HDMI to my TV, and run it on a separate input? Or run it to a media extender which i have but it is a 360, and I've heard some horror stories about using this as an extender. If I plug this thing into my TV and use it as my cable box with a TV Guide setup..can I leave it running with Media Center all the time, and use the Remote that comes with the case to change channels/record show's ect? If anyone has a good tutorial that would be great as well, I've looked but just found the basic's not some specific questions. Thanks in advance!
