The same company that made DVBLink to make the HD PVR work with Media Center just released this software that allows you share tuners from one computer with others over the network. With this you could install all of your tuners in a server on a main HTPC and share them out over the network.

I don't have time to try this on my HTPCs but hopefully this works well.

Very interesting. I like the idea of one main server with a bunch of tuners being able to feed it out.

The software appears to also work on WHS which I think is very cool. Now I just wonder if a standard wireless G network would be able to handle the network load.

It would depend on what you're streaming and if it re-encodes the video or just redirects the stream. I would say no unless you have a *VERY* solid and reliable G network, and you're probably only going to get one stream over it so no watch one record another.
