Smile Newbie needs guidance (simplified)

I am trying to get up to speed with two things.
- First would be building my own Home Theater Personal Computer(HTPC).
- The second would be learning about SageTv.

Has anyone started a thread, a sticky, a wiki, or any documentation to help the newcomer. I have seen the FAQs on the main site and the FAQs on the SageTV software subforum. The use of SageTV should be more of a science and less of an art. These are merely physical components run by software. Does it need to be so complicated?

I am a Software Engineer, so hardware is a weak point for me, but there are a countless number of different variations here in software and hardware to accomplish the same task. I know, I know in my business I always get the guy that just wants me to "FIX IT", "whip something up", or "spend a couple of minutes on this one". Well, I realize that sometimes it is just not that simple.

I would love some simple step by step guidance on the why, when, and how of SageTV and recording your own. The key word is 'simple'. I don't want to rebuild my Operating System. I just want to have a Tivo with more control and more capacity (determined by me).

Please no flaming. I am a newbie, novice, beginner, and inferior in every way to yourself. Now that that is out in the open, please help.
Thank you,
