Beyond TV 3.5 and SnapStream's Medusa PVR

Coolio.  I would love to have two or three more Hauppauge 250 tuners myself.  So far, BTV 3.5 has been awesome!

Beyond TV 2.5

To inaugurate the release of SnapStream’s Beyond TV 3.5 (and perhaps also to piss off Sony, whose Vaio type X costs about five times as much for about as many TV tuners), they’ve assembled a white-box PC with six Hauppauge tuners and a measly 5400RPM 40GB hard drive. They’re calling it the Medusa PVR, and funny as it may be, the $1,200 machine works, and works well. Though it doesn’t have 1.5 terabytes of storage, it’s still good enough for us in that over the top ridiculously excessive kind of way.
