Interesting thought -- I just looked into the Book PC units. It looks like
everything I'd want, except that it doesn't seem to have the equivalent of a
digital output (either optical or coax) so that I can run the audio through
my regular system. Do you know of anything that supports that? Which USB
vidcap system do you use? Does it support/have you built the "timer"
interface to record TV shows? Does your vidcap device have a tuner on it or
are you using some other tuner?
