Ok, I've tried to find as much information about this as possible, but everything seems to be unclear and out-dated.
Here's the situation. I have HD digital cable. I want to buy a desktop computer, but I don't want to buy a monitor/I have nowhere to put a monitor.
So, what I want to do is be able to watch tv and use the computer at the same time, displayed on my tv. Basically I want to have a window that shows what would be on a tv if i was watching tv normal, kinda like a virtual tv.
One thing I have found so far is the Hauppauge HD-PVR. I would like to know if this will provide a live stream from my cable box to a window in my computer, and if so, will it be HD quality.
I also saw the Cable Card tuner, but i don't want to buy a manufacturer direct desktop.
Any help or other possible options would be greatly appreciated.
