More specifically, how well does it work for watching TV, mainly recorded, but sometimes live?

I have plenty of experience with PCs. I do not have plenty of experience with Media Center. I know you can throw a tuner card into the PC, and watch TV and use it as a DVR. I know you can use the Xbox 360 to access all of your content. I am not afraid of the hardware or software. I will probably end up building a dedicated PC to use for this purpose.

My goal is to move the Tivo to the bedroom, and set up the Media Center PC in the office, then use the Xbox360 in the living room to do everything from watching live and recorded TV, streaming photos, music, videos, etc. from the PC to the TV, Netflix, Vudu, and of course play games.

Anyone with specific experience with this kind of setup please chime in and tell me if it is worth pursuing or if I should give up before I start. :) Thank you.
