You'll need a HDTV tuner but as of now, none are very good.

Basically the only thing that matters on a home theatre pc is tons of storage and a good capture card. I'm actually turning my old amd machine into an HTPC, but i have to get a router first and i have been entirely too lazy to really care :P
