    Are there any setups where I can run TV through my computer to display on my monitor and use the computer sound but also lets me have a remote control? Will this also let a Playstation, Xbox, etc. be run to play on the monitor?

    Also, If i get a monitor with high enough resolution, can it run HDTV stuff? either 720 or 1080 stuff?

    Thinking of a big dell or apple monitor for my computer and just not get a TV for my bedroom.

    Get a TV tuner card. Dozens to choose from.
    To watch HDTV you'll need a TV tuner card that supports HDTV. As far as I know there aren't any in the USA...but don't quote me.
