    For the new year, i want to completely revolutionise my home entertainment system.

    Through my projector i want to be able to watch TV, record tv, watch videos, dvds.

    My idea is to build a cheap computer, put in it a good TV card, that'll allow me to watch and record off tele, and has a remote control etc... easy to use, my flat mates are computer illiterate u see. Also, i want to be able to link it up to cable(we have cable tv runnin through the house) I want to put in the computer a good dvd player/ recorder, to watch dvds and record onto from the tele. I'm not really sure how the vcr would be connected, maybe directly into the pj. This would be a dedicated computer to serve the projecvtopr only. I have another pc upstairs, but not sure how the distance would work, esp with a remote.

    My only probelem is, is that i dont know how to do this. What do i buy, how to put it together. Is this a realistic solution.

    I have £2000. The panasonic ae300 i think it was pj, (about £1200) looked quite good, leaves me with £800. please help me..

    Thank you
    Saul.

    Welcome & happy Xmas .

    I think you'd be better off asking here, as it's dedicated to what you need.
