A while back I build a computer to use as a DVR and switched to Comcast. It has been awesome up until about a week ago. Comcast made a bunch of changes and now I can't just plug the cable into my tuner card, I have to go through a set top box or something. I did find a new tuner card that just started shipping. It looks nice. It allows you to put in one CableCard and gives you 4 tuners. It is $400 bucks though and I'm not sure I want to be the guinea pig on that new technology. So now I am thinking about going back to DIRECTV or Dish Network. I was wondering if anyone is using Windows Media Center with either of these. The thought of using an IR blaster is not that appealing to me. It seems like there would be some lag time. I'm just curious to know how it would work, or do I just not try to go through my media center pc? It is still nice to have so I can watch netflix & hulu with ease.
