Hi Everybody. I am hooking an older computer (P4, 2.0, Microsoft Home) to my projector. Didn't even think I could display HDTV from a computer until I saw this forum last night. Now I'm not able to spend the money on a complete Home Theatre computer, but just wanted to be able to display whatever HD content I'm able to pick up on the net with 5.1 or better yet 7.1 sound. Any recommendations on what to purchase would be very much appreciated.

Enjoy the day everyone!

put simply, you need a tuner card.

And TV Tuners are cheap. $45 for a basic card. But don't forget that you will also need a TV antenna. Don't be sold into a special "HD" antenna, any regular one will do.


$45 TV Tuner +

$15 Antenna

_____________

$60 for HDTV capabilities.


If you have Media Center, you can also schedule and record TV like a normal DVR.
