Ah, well there I cannot help you.  My cable doesn't pull in BBC hd channels :)

Having picked a smaller htpc like case, I am somewhat concerned about
the heat output.  If the 5050e can handle recording an hd stream while
displaying hd livetv then it sounds like a winner.  Of course, if I
can find a relatively quiet fan to cool the 7750 and that will fit the
slim case, two thumbs up.
