Any reason you don't want to use Media Center?
Also, what tuner card doi you have?.... Hauppage has it's own WinTV, which allows you to do a few of the things that you could with MCE.

Most tuner cards themselves come with a TV watching application.

If your looking for an integrated experience the only one I know of is MythTV (linux). Several people I know use Myth and are quite happy with it.
