Hi guys, I'm new to HCPC and I would like to get a few questions off my chest. So please be patient and just try to see past my ignorance to the subject in hand. Here goes.. 1. Why is the picture from a HCPC better than the picture from a good standalone DVD player? 2. What are the minimum requirements for good picture and sound from a PC? Also, how much will I need to spend? 3. What is the current state of the art in HCPC? 4. Is there a digital output socket (coaxial) at the back of a PC so that I can plug a cable straight into the back of my 5.1 channel amp? 5. Surely a PC is not practical. How do you get around the menu and the basic controls without a remote control. Have you ever tried using a mouse in the dark? 6. I can plug a PC straight into my TV via the VGA input slot. Would this input be superior to the RGB input (using a DVD player) on the TV? Many thanks... I would appreciate it if someone could answer as many of my questions as possible.
