Well, i am s sucker for HTPC stuff, i have my own
(based on a Hush box) for which i have written a php based PVR solution
(i intend to rework the code and release it as some point, stay tuned).
While trying to find a good box for a friend of mine i ran across the
new Asus S-presso. Its really sweet and would probably make a great HTPC box (and with its build it TV tuner the price is not that bad).
