While I have not utilized wireless for this I have been using mythtv for
some time now.  It has changed the way I watch TV completely.  If I was
to set this up again I would utilize a diskless netbootable front end
system and have a single backend system that would have the encoder
cards and drive space.

use wireless (802.11g) for the connection between the frontend and the
backend systems.  

I highly recommend mythtv if you are looking for DVR type functionality.
