I like the idea.
Has anybody gotten VDR to run on the PS3 in the meantime?

Apparently, there is a commercial "vdr" system for the PS3
available now.

http://playtvps3.com

It's a bit hard to find concrete technical information
on the above web site, but it seems that this a DVB-T box
and it costs 100 Euros.

Not really exciting.

I am looking for a silent, SAT-HDTV capable, inexpensive
system.

Would the PS3 be a good base for that?

Any other suggestions?

Carsten.
