with a DVD player and 1 recorder, with transcode and dvdrip you can make a backup of DVD.
with VLC you can share all media over network.
add a tv card and with xawdecode (or Zapping) + plugin Nagra you can see and record tv.
you can make a radio with xmms or other to listen across the net.
and so on.
