Hi just wondering what the cheapest pvr you can build from opensource components is. And have all the features of a typical PVR like MySky. Please advise key components and where they can be bought in NZ and what os they work with.
Something that i noticed that may relevant - there are micro towers available from stores like DSE for cheap now due to having vista on them. One such example is $500 for a e5200 + 2gb ram + 320gb hard drive + Geforce G100 (9400gt) from dick smith and its nice and small too. Disadvantage are that it has vista (fine if you use mediaportal) and it has a single PCI-E 1x Low profile expansion slot (fine if you use a HVR-2200 which comes with a low profile bracket)
