I'm also very new to this.  I found LinuxMCE from asking around.  Basically I want to be able to do something like this:

Internet -> laptop/PC doesn't matter -> TVUPlayer-like app or something similar -> TV out -> TV (HD tv)

Basically to watch internet TV on an actual TV that can serve as a replacement for things like cable tv, etc.  I thought LinuxMCE was a very close approximation so I hope to gain more info here.

I'm a little confused as to how the setup will actually work.  I think I've read that you setup the core hardware and install Linux MCE on it.  The core can also serve as the media director which is where you can do tv-out (s-video out or hdmi) to an actual tv.  But I'm not sure what hardware to buy for this setup to work.  And, if I install this, where does the tv channels come from?  I hope for someone to help me understand this.
