This setup is about $1,300, just wonder if its worth it, thanks again
looks like a pretty nice setup. i love the d-vine cases. anyway, you should make sure that the hauppauge tuner card does hardware mpeg 2 encoding. i know that ATI sells a card that does it for like $70 (look up the e home wonder on newegg).
media center 2005 should work with your satellite box. the remote that you got has an IR blaster in the receiver, so you just hook that up to the satellite box and everything should work fine.
