Do you fancy a HTPC gussied-up as a DVR? Well, you're in luck, because Ryan Whiteman's just built one: the Delta DVR. Powered by an AMD system-on-chip, it runs Windows and Media Center for embedded devices, recording up to six HD channels at once on its 3TB HDD. It can also stream PC game titles from the cloud and run Android apps, controllable with any gamepad that'll plug into one of the four front-mounted USB ports. It'll also act as a DLNA node pulling stored photos, music and movies from your home network over 802.11n WiFi. It'll be unveiled tomorrow at the DEMO trade-show and we've pinged the company to find out when we can expect news on a release date or price.
