These AIO do not include the optional TV tuner, and as far as I can tell, it is not available to add in after the fact.
I would agree about the first part. For example, my Dish Network Hopper can stream media FROM any of the Windows PCs on my WiFi network, streaming to is another story. Only to my iPad.
As to the second point, you can always get a perfectly capable external, USB tuner and hook it up to this. My fave is the SiliconDust HDHomeRun HDHR3-US. Win/Mac/Linux, you can use it for OTA broadcasts or ClearQAM cable (unencrypted cable) in 720p or 1080i. On Windows it works with Media Center, Mac uses EyeTV and Linux uses MythTV. You can also stream from your iOS devices to the box. No brainer if you ask me.
