The wife's laptop runs WIN-7 so that does OK with the native Media Center app. WIN-7 Media center is artificially limited to 4 tuners... MS knows best... at least they think they do. I've not seen a need to use Tuner salad to bump that up to 8.

I'm still running my DVR function on my XP box. Using the native scheduler utility + my custom batch files and VLC. There is no limit to how many tuners can be managed this way.

Presently, I'm working on a HTPC based on Mythbuntu. While I have it working, there are several hardware issues due to a lack of open source support for the video adapter currently installed.
If the well is dry and you don't see rain on the horizon, you'll need to dig the hole deeper. (If the antenna can't get the job done, an amp won't fix it.)
