First post...here goes What's the best way, if any, to build a HTPC which will interface with my Dish Network HD signal (currently a VIP722 dvr)? The ideal scenario would be a machine which I can use to watch live tv, record tv, watch recorded tv/movies, etc. I'm flexible on the UI but will probably go with Win7 Media Center since I'm going on about 10yrs since I touched linux. Is this currently possible? It's been a couple years since I've researched this sort of thing but the only consistent thing I'm finding is an engadget post about "TV with Dish Network" menu in Win7 Media Center. And apparently this being my first post I can't include the url. www. engadgethd .com /2009/09/10/video-dish-network-media-center-tuner-in-action/ Any and all suggestions would be fantastic!
