    I am looking for similar products, I want to turn my PC into a tivo basically. I could just buy a tivo box but this is a lot more appealing to me :)

    Snapstream is great, but you could go with SageTV

    They all have their advantages and disadvantages, if you are using a satellite, then Snapstream is the way to go. You can only get MCE as OEM or with an MSDN subscription. I hear MythTv is very difficult to use. A lot of people on the snapstream forums use Sage also...

    Does sage cut out commercials? I have not watched a commercial in a few months, I don't know how I lived without Snapstream before...
