    I basically have two questions:
    1 - I'm wanting to use a spare computer as a PVR, and am wanting some advice on what to look for in regards to a video card and software. It's just your basic projection TV, Hardon\Kardon receiver, dvd, etc. I get my stations through Dish network
    2 - Second question is more odd. I'm also wanting to hook up a PC in my kitchen. My thought is to put a flat panel in the wall, use a wireless mouse and keyboard, and have it pull up the internet (for recipes), play music, and just scroll through pictures in it's down time like a digital picture frame.
    I know nothing about running dual monitors. Is something like that possible?
    Thanks for any info!
