I'm not looking for lists of components or software that you guys recommend (I'll study the forum first)... But... Does the Hardware/Software exist for a HTPC to record FreeView DTT in the same way or a similar way to TIVO or Sky+ box? Can DVD-Audio disks be played via the box or will I need a separate DVD-A player? I'm considering building/buying an HTPC and want a lot of options:- RAID with 2 Huge (120gb+) Drives, LAN(Pref Wireless), High End Audio, High End GFX, HD3D, Quiet/Silent fans. Will all these things squeeze into a decent HTPC case? If I switch from Extron Scaler to HTPC is there any way to get the PC to do my external source scaling? specifically VCR, but also DTT depending on answer to TIVO question. Many thanks, Mark.
