When Microsoft's Windows XP Media Center edition outsells their standard edition, people start to notice a trend in do-it-yourself video recording. Yahoo sure did, and is releasing their Go for TV software in order to act as an all in one video, photo, and TV player — just like Media Center.
You'll have to have a Windows PC in order to use this, and you'll have to have a TV Tuner in order to use the DVR features. The software has a fairly slick interface that looks nicer in screenshots than open source solutions (we couldn't test this for ourselves because our XP machine with a Tuner card is busted). With free almost always beating out not free, Yahoo may just have a competitor for MCE that people will jump on.
