Just curious about potentially doing the same. There are some obvious benefits about doing this. First off, you buy a PC TV card. Then you can record shows onto your HDD, CD or DVD. Then being able to play them from the same source(s). Not having redundant sound systems for your TV and computer. Being able to invest in a really good monitor and forget about having a TV altogether. And saving space in your place as well (some of the more expensive properties actually cost more per square foot than the TV that occupies it!). So there are economic and logistical benefits of converting your computer into a workstation, playstation and TV.
So, why don't we see this being more widespread? Too troublesome, or maybe if your comp bugs out, you lose all forms of household entertainment?
