I personally never wanted to maintain a buggy windows PC as a media center or PVR… which is why I love my TiVo so much. For those who prefer to do the PVR thing on the PC, things just got exciting. TiVo and Nero partnered to give you most of the TiVo PVR capabilities for your PC.
The $199 software bundle comes with a TV tuner, TiVo software, and a TiVo remote. The kit comes with out a TV tuner as well if you already have one and will have off $100. The only bad side (other than using a PC) is that you will have to pay $99 per year to keep the service going.
Look for it on October 15th. Screen shots after the break.
