while pricing out a new XPS Gen 4 there is an option for dual TV tuners.
What do you need 2 tuners for? Can you watch two channels in windows at the
same time?

With appropriate software you can watch one channel while recording another.
Record two separate channels simultaneously.

Windows Media Center edition has such software natively. I don't know what
comes on the XPS systems

Watch one program while recording another? Record two programs at the
same time?

Do any of the systems record HDTV? I have been trying to put together a
Media Center PC for my HDTV home theater, but can't find any video cards
that will accept component or DVI inputs.
