I have been reading a few threads on FiOS and how to use it with a HTPC, but they all seem like the users want WAAAAY more from their setups than I do, and therefore the answers seem to be way more complex and confusing than what I really need (or at least that's what I'm hoping).
I don't really care about recording (though if prices are similar, I'll go with whatever option allows me to do so); I just want to be able to watch my Verizon FiOS TV channels on my computer, or even just on my monitor.
I already have a STB in that room of the house, it is NOT a DVR but it does have the VOD capability. Is there a way for me to just hook up the STB to my computer and still be able to watch the VOD stuff?
Basically I just don't want to have a TV in my room anymore and would like to get away with using my Computer monitor. I'm not even that worried about quality, as I currently have an OLD TV from 1993 in my room - surely anything will be just as good as that? Can anyone help me?
