Re: Lian-Li PC-C33 & PC-C34F HTPC Chassis

Hello , Building a HTPC is pointless in the USA - until CableCard capable tuners are available at retail, there is no way to time-shift or record one channel while watching another (having separate cable boxes or satellite tuners does not count, as they would have to also be linked to the PC with analog A/V cables and IR transmitters). Way to go Cable Labs
