Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
My TiVo died when I moved a few months ago, and I'm looking to replace it. Although I liked the TiVo, I'm not too keen on the monthly fees, so I am considering a home theater PC, but am somewhat bewildered by the options out there.
How fast do I need it to be (or how much memory do I need) to be able to equal my TiVo's performance? Namely, I'd like to be able to record two TV shows simultaneously in HD (720p is okay) while also simultaneously streaming HD video from the internet or my lan. And I'd like to do it with a box that looks good in my entertainment center and is no louder than an xbox 360. Is this something that can be done for under $650? A Tivo Premiere plus lifetime service is $650 these days, so that's the target I'd be looking to beat.
