Why bother? You can get a slim PC with cheap, commodity components, a TV 
tuner, a graphics card with video out, install Freevo or MythTV with MPlayer, 
Xine or your favorate DVD-capable video software, use XMLTV, and voila, 
you've got your total Linux multimedia hub where you can rip DVD's to your 
personal libraries, record TV shows, burn whatever you want to Video CD, DVD, 
or whatever format you choose, and without any stupid DRM or pay-for-play 
service restrictions.

By the way, No Starch Press is actively looking for a book on the subject :@)
