BBC iPlayer On a Samsung LCD

Was doing a reinstall for a mate the other day which in return i got an old PC HP Compaq dc7100 so was thinking what to do with a slim hp Compaq, was just going to use for Internet but had a brain wave and why not have a media PC for my TV

Have just ordered a Hauppauge WinTV-NOVA-T 500 Dual Digital Freeview TV tuner as it will fit a slimline case also think it will be handy having twin tuners even thou the TV has a digital tuner built-in so can watch one channel and record another two :)

Also going to get a larger hard drive as it's only fitted with a 40GB drive which would fill up quite fast with TV files so have a 400 GB coming

Only one other bit i really want is a Sapphire Radeon X1600 Pro HDMI as it perfect fit for a slim case plus has HDMI, just can't find them in the UK yet so will have to wait

So now i have a BBC iPlayer for my TV which is so handy plus when i get it sorted as i need a TV card a TV recorder which i can upgrade hard drives when needed which is so much better than a standalone recorder

First bit shows BBC iplayer streaming video from BBC which does have a drop in pic quality but it's not to bad plus video once you have downloaded it which is top notch
also show 4OD running
