I've thought about purchasing a TiVO or replayTV, but my pet peev is that they charge for monthly service AND you can't output the data for recording onto DVD's. I figure I could make my own computer for the cost of the ready to go Pioneer DVR with DVD's which range from $1200-1800. Has anyone done this with enough advice to get me started? I figure a Radeon all-in-wonder card would be the most expensive piece but I don't want to buy a better card than I need since I don't want advanced gaming capabilities, etc... My other question is that I understand TiVO and replayTV need a separate phone jack connection to get the program listings? With a computer you apparently don't need this, but are the listings available online cohesive with different cable companies in different regions? Lastly, can I build a system that lets me take advantage of HDTV broadcasts when available? Thanks in advance!
