How fast is the processor on the PC? For HD you need at least 2.6ghz and 512mb ram. You need a VERY BIG hard drive, how big is yours? Do you have XP or XP-MCE? XP is easier to set up. It makes a difference on which card you buy, especially for HDTV cards. John
i need some help. my husband refuses to pay for cable and so we have a big antenna in the attic attached to an HD box that allows us to receive HD Broadcast channels. I would like to have the DVR capability you get with cable so that I can also watch my favorite shows, and my husband thinks this is possible with a computer. The computer he is looking to get is the: acer aspire ASL310 EC352M from CompUSA.
He believes that all he needs is a TV tuner to plug into a slot on this tower. Has anyone done this? If so, do you have any tips? Does this computer look like it will be capable?
