Hi Guys, I'm after opinions based on your experience with certain products. A long time ago (2003) I bought a modified US Series 1 Philips TiVo which was modified to work here in Aus and relied on a separate Set Top Box. This was allowed by TiVo until they decided to move into the market. Anyway a longish story cut short, the set top box is dead, and there are no new images to my knowledge on getting it to work with a new STB and be able to record all the new Free-to-air channels. So i am looking to replace my aging TiVo with a new PVR that has the ability to fast forward. So far all I can really see in the market are four PVR's (not including foxtel). 1. TiVo (no fast forward) 2. Topfield 3. Beyonwiz 4. Teac Now my dad bought the cheapest he could find about a year ago, a TEAC and it isnt really all that nice to use, compared to a TiVo anyway. I am wanting to buy something that is easy enough for my family to use, simple enough to be able to setup and remove season passes to shows, and something that wont break the bank ... < $500 Now I do have an old P4 3GHz, 2GB Ram, 7600GT AGP, and a USB Leadtek DTV Dongle, however I don't want to buy a new version of Win7, and additional dongle if it doesn't really function the same way a separate PVR would. I don't want to spend time troubleshooting why its not recording, although if it works, and works well then I may consider it as a HTPC. I have had a quick look into MythBuntu, but it is not friendly enough for my family. So .... What you like / dislike? Would you buy again? Would you build your own? How feasible in terms of $$$ How simple is it to use? Eventually I'll be getting a new AMP, looking at Denon 790 / 1910, but for the moment It'll need to plug directly into my Samsung 40" LED TV. Thanks OCAU I might add as well that I am also looking a getting a BlueRay Player at some stage as well, probably after I get a new AMP though.
