I want to build a tivo like system

Hi all.
I am toying with the idea of creating a Tivo like system, and I would like some advice about the hardware.
what I have in mind is an pc running linux, with some capturing hardware, a fairly large hd, and enough horse power to handle video recoding,
and ofcourse a video card with good tv out, which works well under linux.

an obvious idea is to connect it to the satellite receiver (that box that got the channels guide and control the current channel etc), control it via the pc, and get the tv guide from it.
another idea, maybe less obvious, is to create a web interface to the recording program, to allow recording things remotely.

I would also like to know if there are existing projects out there that already started working on something similar - It would be more productive to join efforts in such a case.
