    I was wondering if anybody can recommend components and steps to do such a thing.

    Basically what I want to do is to build a new PC in the next few months with a HDTV tuner. I want my computer monitor (looking at the dell 3007) to double as my television and monitor. Thing is, I'm not too sure if I can connect a Comcast digital receiver to the HDTV tuner... or should I be looking into some other device for my PC that accepts component/hdmi that can output television from the digital receiver to the monitor. I also wish to install DVR software.

    So to sum it all up, I want to watch HDTV (not over the air HD signal... i want espn, hbo, etc) on my PC and be able to watch and record it using a standard monitor.

    Is this even possible? I'm not too sure since i'm a total n00b about this shit.

    Thanks.
