Anyone has experience with this
I'm looking into building a new PVR/DVB-S receiver, and VDR ( http://www.cadsoft.de/vdr/ ) looks like the way to go!

Here are the screenshots of the machines that people have built: http://www.cadsoft.de/vdr/people.htm
And here are screenshots of what the menus look like:

More pics and info here: http://www.cadsoft.de/vdr/software.htm

Edit: Forgot to add this, which is a third party (free!) software to manage VDR via WEB interface. Can be configured in German and English:


And a HUGE gallery of VDR User Stations built here: http://www.vdr-portal.de/board/galle...s.php?cat_id=2

I builded a HTPC for myself last fall. Till now only file playback is supported but Im thinking about getting a PVR 150 so that baby changes into one supporting VDR capabilities

Also I wonna get an Airstar2 DVB-T card for that HTPC so that will be supported also.
Windows2000 is on that HTPC but Im thinking about getting Kanotix or something similiar. But as I do got 0 (zero) skills on Linux this will be one of my next projects to get into
