    A while back I ditched the idea of getting an HTPC, got a tivo instead, and carried on. Recently I've started wondering again - the Sony xl301 looks good and maybe the products are more mature in this area now.

    But here's the thing...I like in a mac household and am a bit reluctant to introduce a windows box. However, I've been waiting forever for Apple to do some obvious things, like put digital tuners in one of the apple tv or mac mini machines, with an EPG that can be accessed from Front Row.

    I'm now wondering if I should just give up on this wait - it seems like this would perhaps represent too big a conflict of interest for apple, who want to use Apple TV to sell shows? It seems like it's intended as an iTunes Store show window in my living room, which is fine but I would kind of expect it to be subsidized if that's the case!
