I'll keep you in mind :). 

I did just get my HDhomerun set up, and I highly suggest this is the way 
to go.. Its so nice not having the hardware inside the box and it was 
fairly easy to get going once you remove all the channels that are 
detected but are encrypted (qam256).

Another point (not trying to get booed) but if you want to try another 
PVR say sagetv or beyondtv would never think of the MS one.  Both are 
supposed to be supported by the hdhomerun soon (sagetv is in beta right
