My System Specs

Default

#1 & 3) You can use the standard MCE remote + IR blaster combo to change the channels on his Rogers box but it works best with Windows MCE or Vista Home Premium (Media center).

#2 ) Always get a separate TV tuner and video card. But make sure the Video card is new enough to offload the work of any High def. content your friend may want to watch.

Let us know if you'd like some more product-specific suggestions.
