I will be capturing and recording TV.  It will all be
saved on a network file server, and I will watch it
with thin clients at each TV (namely, Xboxes running
xbox media center).

There is no reason for me to do anything at the myth
box than spool video input to disk.  Easy.

So ... I notice that after posting this group of
questions twice in two days, nobody still has even
attempted to answer them ... are these really hard
questions or something ?
