No More Cable ... TiVo? Roku? Boxee? AppleTV? Something Else?

We're ditching our cable and researching alternatives. We have two HD TiVo Series 3 boxes that we're not using (because the cable cards provided by Comcast would not work). We're thinking of a set-up involving OTA television (we live in Atlanta, so reception should not be a problem) + something streaming, but we're not sure if we want to keep the TiVos or invest in something else -- Roku? Boxee? AppleTV? And here's one major issue for me -- live sports (mainly the NFL and college football)?

I need help picking media center software. What fits my seemingly simple requirements?

I came into some hardware I have no other use for, so it's time to try some "media center" software! Yay! Difficulties: Spouse-friendliness is important, I don't know the media center scene very well, the hardware I have isn't all that fancy, and my patience for scouring all the different projects' forums to sort them out is somewhat limited. Can you help me sort out my options and pick something that's close to my requirements? [more inside]
