PVRs

Joe's rant about his shiny new PVR makes me wonder how feasible it would be to get one of the many free alternatives out there working with a digital tuner...

Personally I don't think digital TV is worth it right now, at least not with Rogers. All the channels I like are only available in analog, and all the spiffy new digital specialty channels seem like people trying desperatly hard to come up with content to fill all this newfound digital bandwidth. So if you're just talking analog, I think it's far more worth it to buy your own PC with a huge harddrive, a few TV tuners and a TV out card. That way you have control over the software, you can use whatever remote you like (using lirc), and are not limited to just watching TV.

Wow, all this from a guy who doesn't even have cable right now...
