CNET's Crave blog continues with week two of its just-launched giveaway contest! This week's prize: Nero LiquidTV, a DVR package for your PC that features TiVo's software interface.
It's a great option for a spare PC. And even if you're not wild about the TiVo software or service, the bundled Hauppauge tuner is worth $99 all by itself.
Nero's TiVo-in-a-box package provides a tuner, remote, TiVo software, and a one-year subscription to the TiVo service. (After that, $99 per year--ugh.)
This compact system has everything you need for home-theater happiness, including a TV tuner, a remote, a Blu-ray drive, and 802.11n Wi-Fi. If it matters, it's a refurb.
The AverMedia AverTVHD Volar brings digital channels to your desktop or laptop. The tuner lets you watch live TV (via cable or antenna) on your PC.
For a little more than the price of a tuner, you get everything you need to put TiVo on your PC.
