The cheapEST way would be two HVR-950s or HVR-1250s (figure $50-65 each),
plus an nvidia card that does XvMC ($30). Assuming your machine has enough
usb/pcie slots to support them, of course.
If that doesn't work for you, then the next cheapest route is the HVRs on
the backend, plus a UPnP front end that does high def. I bought my ZyXEL
for $100 with a rebate, $150 is the regular daily price.
A lot of people like the HDHR, but I just don't like throwing traffic on my
network that I don't believe HAS to be there. Add in that dual hauppauges
are cheaper, and the HDHR was a non-starter for me.
