Duncan posted a link to his awesome case mod & PVR project in the new DIY PVR Forum for Canadians

His project even was featured over at engadget Windows XP PVR-in-a-radio.

They’ve even managed to set their recorder to automatically detect and skip commercials, and they are still able to surf the Web via TV, since it is still Windows, afterall. And the big bonus? They jammed it in an old-school lookin’ radio just for kicks
