HTPC or TiVo or what?

518 Views 7 Replies 5 Participants Last post by  Acturbo
What is the point of getting a HTPC? Is it worth the money? Alienware wants $1800 for one, alough I asume you could build one for less. Anyway, is there any reason to spend the extra money on a HTPC insted of just getting TiVo or something like that?

They have those CableCards now that do the digital cable without a cable box. I don't see the point of them for TVs so much, but I would expect there to be a PC peripheral one of these days that will accept CableCards. When that happens, you should be able to get better digital DVR on a PC.

For now though, I would just get a Tivo or a DVR from your cable company.
