first i want to say.. this sight is awsome. ive newly retired from playing mmorpg's ( just got repetative and boaring) and have been looking for a hobby to fill that space.
this stuff that you guys have been posting has realy given me something to think about. and i appreciate the information in response to my posts.
so a big THANKS for all that.
now for the, im sure, dumb question. because i am for sure not one of the intel people that whats his name was asking about.
all my current yamaha mech. is a little and a lot behind the times. my dvd player wont play anything burned and im missing a lot of features that are showing up on the newer stuff. BUT to replace my rather expensive equipment would cost me well over 2k i think if i replaced everything.
anyway...l was told that i could take one of my pc's ( i have a few older ones all under 1ghrz, and turn it into an intertainment monster.
one guy even told he runs his pirated ( not that id EVER do that ) dish information through his pc first, so when his card takes a hit, its his pc that actualy takes it. it simply shuts off, restarts and WALA hes back in buisness.
so im wondering if this is possible first, and second is it cost effective?
also how hard is it to do this?
ive got a ti 4400 card i could use, and i believe its tv ready ( although ive never used it, and im not sure how you hook that up)
and as far as programs.. i only have xp on that pc..nothing extra for media or any sort of video.
i know i said a lot for a simple few questions....
any aid here would be absorbed like a starving spunge.. especialy instructions.. or a site that might tell me how to set this up.
thanks a glob all.
