    I have heard that it is possible to use a cheap pc tv card with a bit of
    simple code and psu etc. hooked up to a lcd screen to use as a tv. Has
    anyone done it? or is it better to just buy AVERTV DVB-T-STB3 mentioned in
    another thread?

    Cheers

    Well sure, you can use a pc tv card in a pc .. with Windoze or Linux.


    You dont need a powerful cpu as the tv card will do DMA diret to the video
    card ram.
    The cpu is jist supervising -

    you can use linux in non-X (not graphical user interface) if its a
    dedicated to being a TV.
