The only one I've really seen i XBOX Alchemy. Not sure of the web address though.

I have used and would personally recommend Premodded (click here).
Their xbox is reasonable priced and the service is very good, with a support forum for their customer. The chip used is also well made and of good quality brand.

Do you know if you can RECORD LIVE TV on these, whether on HARD DRIVE or DVD Recorder?

Thanks

Not as far as I can tell, as there is no tv input into the box. If there was a way to stream TV over the network then I guess it would be possible.

I too can recommend Premodded, I got my Xbox from them about 6 months ago, works a treat!

The answer is yes and no. Xbox is really just a Pentium III box. Technically, you could make it to behave as one. You could mod it to have USB, and firewire and also to have DVDRW. These mod are not commercially available though and it is more like a hobby. Check this site for more click here.
The modded Xbox bought from the mentioned shop would natively:

1. Yes for all (not sure about JPG and SACD).
2. Not a Video Recorder. I don't think there is a video in port - unless you manage to stream it to your box. You could rip DVD and CD to your HD though.
3. Only Ethernet.
