Alternate to Media Center
I am currently running Windows Media Center Edition 2004, and am switching to linux (fedora core 3). I bought another hard drive so I could keep Windows, because I use it to watch/record TV. I would not be upset at all to get rid of windows all together, but I havent seen an alternate to wath/record TV and be able to burn to DVD. Does anyone know anything good?
I have a ATI All-in-Wonder 9000 with remote TV tuner.

For burning DVD's (and CD's), K3B works very well. Can't help you with the TV, but I seem to remember that KDE has a program or two for this kind of thing (for recording audio streams, it has Kstreamripper).Stumbling around the 'net:

Linux has a couple of really good PVR software utils. One is called MythTV, the other is Freevo. I prefer Freevo, as it's easier to install and use. If you're looking to just watch TV, you can use TVTime, KDETV, or mplayer. You should be able to record w/ mplayer, too. I don't know about yout TV card, but mine has an AUX input, so I can record right off of whatever is plugged in as well.
As mentioned above, K3B can burn DVD's
Do you need more info then that? What specifically.
