Users / noob building a linuxMCE system
« on: April 09, 2008, 12:45:27 am »
Hi everyone!!

I'm very exited about LinuxMCE and I want to build a cheap system for my dorm (poor student). So I need some advice.

----------What I have--------------------------------

>T.V. Old CRT 27-inch.
            -RCA input.
            -Coaxial Cable input.
>PC (kind of old)
            -CPU 1800 MHz AMD.
            -512 RAM (plan to update to 1 GB).
            -Nvidia Geforce 5500 256 MB with S-video output.
            -Hard Drive 120 GB.
            -Sound card integrated.

---------Planning to buy------------------------------------
-TV tuner card to plug in my standard time warner cable service.
-1 GB of RAM
-Audio cable to plug in PC sound card to TV RCA input.

Do you guys think this will work?
Whats the best way to connect my PC to the TV?
which TV tuner card should I get?
Am I missing something?

Thank you so much for your time!  :D
