Need help connecting my DirecTV DVR and my new laptop with Windows XP Media Center.

I would like to make this a wireless connection, if possible, so I don't have to be near the TV to watch a program. (It seems pointless to me to have to plug in my laptop to my TV to watch my TV.)
The computers are networked, running on an SBC/Yahoo! DSL connected router...all XP computers.
I would like to be able to watch and record TV on my laptop. (I'm not as interested in using the laptop as a giant remote control.)
I would also like to be able to burn a DVD on my laptop of programs that I've recorded on my DVR.
Any help and/or advice you can give would be greatly appreciated.
I don't know much at all about Media Center Edition at this point, so any tips or tricks that you would like to pass along would also be appreciated.
