TECH - another Media Center PC tip

According to a blog I stumbled upon, recently, there are computers being billed as "media center pc's," that don't have tv tuners. It seems really hard to believe, but it is entirely possible, so I thought I'd pass the word, considering our recent discussions.

To be clear, if you're purchasing a media center personal computer to watch and record television shows (basically as a TiVo alternative), that computer needs to have a tv tuner... otherwise, it can't receive the signal to display tv shows.

If you check out any media center pc's for pricing or purchasing, make sure they come with a tv tuner.
