Hauppauge WinTV-HVR-950Q ($90 at microcenter)

SO, total price $355 plus tax.

The PC has a dual core X2 240 in the version I got and a 500GB HDD. I added the video because it's a passively cooled HD card that will run full HD without a hiccup. And the TV tuner gives me OTA TV. Hooked it up to the A/V receiver and viola.

I also added the SMK Link Ultra-Mini Keyboard for $60 so I could have control in a small package. So far, it's perfect. And totally silent.
Good deal sounds like you've got everything you need. I am in the process of doing the same. Will post specs shortly.
