This article inspired and challenged me. I decided to use the advice you gave , and build my own dvr. I had just given away my spare computer to my sister, who is a college student and needed it more than me. After trying to find a used computer that would qualify for the job, I decided just to spend a few bucks and buy a whole new system. I am currently waiting on it to arrive, so any more information you can give will be appreciated, like compatibility of hardware and software. Thank you very much for the constructive inspiration.
