I run xp on my via epia.. the barebones kit would be perfect for this application really. It's small and pretty much silent.

Also, can you give any insight on how the whole recording of Tv works. I mean, most desktop PCs these deays have so many fans it sounds like a hoover. MS say its aimed at people with little storage space, like apartment dwellers and students, but how are you supposed to sleep if you needs to leave your PC on 24/7 to record that late-night programme??
