Distributed PVR

A distributed PVR system, now that would be usefull.

A mixture of a normal PVR and p2p film downloading, except its with your own boxes, or friends boxes.

It solves my problem of recording channels not broadcasted in certain contries, as Im about to move to another country.

I could either leave a box here or hook up with a friend, and then sync some select shows if needed.

Right, I have purchased the superb P180 case for my PVR .

However I can't afford the interiors so Ive been trying to sell. No takers.

Set up another shopping basket for what I hope to build my PVR with.
(done a few of these now).

Comes to about £500. A bit costlier, than my earlier predictions, due to switching to socket 754 semprons for more sata ports. Also the case is still an expensive one, switching from a nush silverstone to the ultra quiet antec p180. But saving some money as I no longer need a pvr250/350 capture card as I will use direct DVB cards instead.
