* Listen to music
* Play games on a big screen (PC games, emulators)
* View pictures
* Surf the web on a big screen (if you have one)
Those are just some of the things you can do, it's just up to you.
Thanks, I was afraid the DVR wouldn't work. If a pc had an HDMI out, couldn't I do all those things you listed?
