Echostar has their DTVPAL DVR - not a bad unit, and you can upgrade the original 250GB drive to 1TB.
Check this for more ideas - http://www.avsforum....isplay.php?f=42
also any forums on HTPCs.
Like you said, if you have the computer hardware, Hauppauge makes some cards that will let you record HD to your PC, I have one the WinHVR1600. But the PC I'm using it in was fairly good for the time I put it together - Athlon 64 3700, 1 GB RAM (at the time, since upgraded to 2GB), ATI Radeon 9500 256MB video card, Windows XP Pro Sp3 + updates.
