ok, so I've been reading more into hooking my computer upto my HDTV. I'm not really sure it's going to work, but I'm gonna try it when I get home from school. Anyhow, I'm thinking of replacing my Sony DVD player with my computer. The only thing is that I want to be able to use my remote with it. I have the Sony Commander remote, with the Touch-Screen and everything. It's really nice and i don't wanna have to set it aside and use my keyboard everytime I want to watch a DVD. Is there some sort of hardware I need to get to have it work properly? What else would you guys recommend? The PC is basically just going to be running games, internet/email, and movies. The reason I'm not going to use it for anythign is simply because I cant really think of anything else I use my computer for! But if there are other things people use HTPCs for, let me know!
