????   The Beyonwiz is completely independent to your PC.   The Beyonwiz speaks to ICE via the Wiz LAN, not to your PC.   The Windows7 instructions are for Windows media centre (i.e. Windows running a TV tuner or 2 or 10;-) and tuning TV and recording etc on the Windows PC... i.e. nothing to do with your standalone PVRs)

Beyonwiz DP-S1 & Topfield 5K (using PerlTGD to upload ICE EPG/timers for the 5K, normal ICE interactive for the Wiz).

Yes, you need a tuner in your PC to use Ice with Win7 Media Center (Media Center won't let you set up TV functions unless you have a tuner). Although, I believe you may still be able to use the Ice EPG app without a tuner (but I don't think you will be able to schedule, only view). If you are not using your PC to record, stick with the Beyonwiz and Ice Interactive.
