7.1. Project Overview

This project is fairly complex and definitely not cheap if you're starting from scratch, but will result in an HTPC with many features not currently supported by any of the commercially available PVRs. Here's what this HTPC will offer:

  • Free programming guide.

  • Nonproprietary file format allows easy video editing. Permanently remove advertising from your recorded shows!

  • Ability to archive to SVCD or DVD.

  • Ability to watch video files from other sources with automatic metadata lookups.

  • Gaming front-end for use with MAME, NES, SNES, and many other emulators as well as PC games.

  • Integrated weather information display.

  • Integrated music library with the ability to rip or play CDs with CDDB support. (TiVo requires a separate computer and Home Media Option for this.)

  • Integrated photo library with support for downloading directly from your camera. (TiVo requires a separate computer and Home Media Option for this as well.)

  • Ability to Pause/Fast Forward/Rewind live and recorded television shows.
