    You would only have to connect the Sky box, you could use the pc to play everything else. I think you could connect the sky with Svideo lead to your graphics card. You could install a freeview card in the pc, as most boxes are scart output.

    HI IF you put standard DVD's to Hard drive then aim for about 5GB per film.

    (Hi DEF films aim at about 15GB per film - though some can be 25GB !!!!)

    so 300 DVD's will be 1.5TB (tera Bytes) or 1500 GB's

    YOu can now get Hard drives as big as 750 GB so 3 of those in a PC would be a serious media store and alow for expansion.......
