With my new PC now in use, I was thinking about what I could do with my old PC and the only idea that really appealed to me as potentially setting it up as a media center or DVR. But, I’m not sure how reliable and easy to use they are as I have little experience with them.
I’d like to place the machine in another room with it simply plugged in – no periphreals attached (except for what is needed for the media center). I’m then wanting to limit the wires/cables needed and also be able to manage everything through my TV and not have to hook into the PC directly. This seems like it might be something, but I’ve never used any of that.
Assuming it’d be reliable, easy to use and worth doing, I’d be willing to spend money to get it all set up, but I’m just not sure if it is worth it. Anyone have any experience?
