DVR's - TIVO vs. Windows Media Center

What is the best DVR on the market, what are the pro's and con's of different DVR's ?

Can you point me towards a site that answers these questions and takes an indepth look into the world of DVR's ?

Thank You

Tivo is probably still the overall best, for user interface and functionality.  It is known for being "extensible", meaning you can add your own hard drive and play with the OS (Linux).  I prefer the roll-your-own solution with Hauppauge PVR250 and SageTV, which I can use in my pc.  The only drawback is programming from SageTV is not available everywhere, though it is for me.  A good forum with experts discussing PVRs and other AV uses of PCs is the Home Thearter Computers section of www.avsforums.com.  The people there can tell you more than you'll ever need to know about deinterlacing, filters, and remote control automation with Girder.
