??? I'm using vdr-xine so running the tv is:

	- in the Applications menu choose sound and video:xine
	- on the xine control bar click on the vdr button = live TV
	- once xine is running either use onscreen menu or just zap around...

I have specs for a new HTPC and all the bits cost around 650€ (with DVD-
RW and a 200Gb HD). Secondary HTPC for just watching are around 490€
with DVD reader. Too expensive I know but aluminium HTPC cases are way
over priced and this uses a slim DVD which is twice as expensive as
ordinary 5.25".
