I'm currently "researching" Media Centre PCs (am looking at the Higrade DMS II 3400 v Elonex Artisan). However I have a "generic" query regarding TV capture. The MS UK website contains the following :- "... You can connect a set-top box to a Windows XP Media Center PC, and then configure Media Center for your set-top box type and TV service provider. You can then use the Electronic Programming Guide (EPG) to browse and navigate TV channels using the same remote control that lets you access and control recorded TV and movies, music, photos, and other entertainment choices." The more I think about this, surely the STB is going to determine channel and hence programme selection. As such I cant see how the MCE EPG can be used to determine viewing and program recording. Am I missing something here ?
