Its so complex, I currently have telewest cable, dvd player, panasonic recorder all hooked up to an rgb to vga converter. It all looks great on my panasonic plasma. I then thought about a home pc to store movies. I plan to control things via a global cache and tablet pc. I thought I would recycel an old dell gx150 for the job. I mananged to shoehorn in a new 250gb disk and put in my old WinTVpvr card. I am now thinking the 1ghz p3 isnt good enough, even backed with 2gb of ram. It has a built in video card which cannot be altered by powerstrip. What is my best solution? buy a new pc? buy a vga card for the plasma and keep the cable box connected directly? is the wintvpvr good enough? it looked better with dscaler (but i only had an rf connection) but still wobbled and bled, not to mention it looked very fuzzy, would a sweetspot be better? Any suggestions appreciated. I have mce2005 so fancy using it as the front end.. this would hopefully make the system wife friendly.
