Default Re: Cable Televison On Computer Questions

Thank you everyone for your input. I need to read about all of these things. Especially the slingbox.

So much of this stuff is written in marketing babble. Have to really read carefully to see what I can do with a product.

Guess one alternative would be connect my STB to the DVI-I connector on a monitor, use the DVI-D for my computer(Monitor I am looking at has 1x DVI-D 1x DVI-I). Switch back and forth from the input selector on the monitor.

But geeze, I was wanting to keep cables,connectors, and crap down to a minimum. Plus I wanted to just use the Vista's Media Center to control what I wanted to watch. With all this technology, seems there would be an easier way to have it all integrated. Really hoping to control everything from the computer.

Please elaborate how you have your systems configured, the pros and cons.

Once again, I really appreciate everyone's input. Let's keep talking about it.

Thank you,
