The biggest hold up testing new PVR software for me in the past was your tuner was dedicated to the PC via PCIe or USB. I didn't want to interrupt a smooth running MCE system. (and miss shows etc)
Now that I have a Network Tuner, I can experiment with something from my laptop on the side. (Ceton 6 ETH) At first glace it seems more weight is thrown behind silicon dust for non MCE PVR's. I'm sure once the DLNA + hardware h264 version of prime comes out even more innovation will occur.
I see 10 PVR choice add-on's in XBMC. I'm going to read around before I pick the first one to try. heck I don't even know if Ceton ETH 6 is supported on anything other than MCE. I don't expect to make the switch any time soon, but I'd like to stay in the loop on what all our choices are, and see the performance and reliability for myself.
