    Hello all,

    My first question. I am interested in getting a Media Center PC, but I am
    worried about my current television provider. They are a telephone company
    which provides an IPTV service through the phone line. They use a Motorola
    set-top box, and it supplies 3 seperate television feeds. One of the feeds is
    A/V output and the other two are standard coax cable. There are 3 remote
    controls. One is a standard IR remote control for the room where the set-top
    box is. And the other two are UHF remote control that send a signal through
    the air. The software is GUIDEPlus+ and it feel's fairly old and slow. << Link to
    my set-top box.

    How can I use / connect my Media Center PC and use the Media Center's
    program guide? :) Thanks!

    and tv 1 out are located. They are based on tivo but the concept is the
