Its not really cinema per se, but video.
Wandering around at Fatwallet I found reference to a pretty great ReplayTV deal. You can get a ReplayTV 5040 Factory Renewed for $280.49.....with lifetime service activation included.
Being that lifetime service is usually $250, you get the unit for about $30, with no additional service costs ever. Being that they are upping that charge to $299 in a week or so, it turns into a really great deal.
And yes, they are officially under Digital Networks North America now and all the legal stuff is taken care of.
At this price, I wish I could grab two of them!http://www.sonicblue.com/shop/_templates/cat_list.asp?cat=22&c=true
I've thought about building a HTPC, but frankly since my significant other does most of the TV watching, the thought of the most simplistic setup sounds most appealing so not to solicit tech support at home, how do I do this, how do I do that, why isn't this working scenarios......
