...to 'marry' the Internet with an HD TV and eliminate cable/satellite TV? My wife & I were chatting last night. One of her most endearing - and often most frustrating - qualities is to see WAY outside the box. (For a literalist like me, this can be very frustrating at times.) From her perspective, the HD DVR box we have is nothing more than a tuner with a hard drive and some specialized software installed. (Okay, not too far off the mark.) She wanted to know why we couldn't just connect a HDMI-equipped laptop with a huge hard drive and some kind of software (or hardware) to the Internet and get all of our TV through the broadband connection, bypassing the thick black cable coming out of the wall and eliminating the associated monthly charge for TV. After thinking about why it couldn't work, I realized that in a simplistic sort of way, it *should* be possible. The question is, is it? Anyone (Tony?) done it or seriously investigated it?
