Will the mod make the XBox a PVR or just a music streamer and photo viewer?

It's a media streamer. PVR functionality with just an Xbox isn't possible because the Xbox doesn't have a TV-in. Controlling a HTPC and using THAT as the PVR is possible because of the Python scripting, I just don't know about anything off the top of my head.

I have been flirting with setting up an Xbox (or Xbox360) PVR. Ideally I want to interface directly with my HDTV digital cablebox through firewire, but I've been having some "technical" difficulties (Rogers won't update my firmware). Instead I'm looking at setting up a PVR using your Xbox, computer and TV card.
You might see a howto guide popping up on ProductWiki in the coming weeks.

I have a homemade PVR running now and a ROKU running for streaming music. Was looking to combine into one unit.
So with the XBox mod I could (at the present time) stream music & photos with the possible fucure ability to move my video capture card to the XBox and make it a PVR also.
I know NOTHING about the XBox, well I do know its square and black.
Thanks

Unfortunately there's no way that the Xbox will be able to support a Video Capture card. The machine can do a lot of amazing things, but adding new hardware to the device hasn't been an active field of development. So no capture device means no PVR. It would be really amazing if anybody got that working though!
