DIY DVR

Hey people,

Just wondering if any of you have experience with building a dvr? Saw this:

I live in Norway and i was thinking of using my old pc, it has a video capture card and is capable of running xp. The only thing i need to buy is a cheap case.

Had a quick look.

The last one looks great but with a price tag of a £122, it's not cheap but has a remote. Not sure if i can get a cheap one with a remote? I think i might have one with my tv card.

Also software?
