I am just curious, would I be able to network home theater so it could send tv signals over a network??? I'm very new to that and would want to try it in the future so if anyone knows anything feel free to post.

EDIT: To put it in more detail. I want to build a cheap computer, get two tv tuners. I am moving into my friends room which is in the basement and I was hoping to build this pc, network it through his network and broadcast tv over to my computer and his computer. Also being able to change the channel and what not from my computer and his computer (each of us using one of the tuners), no idea if this could work or not, i'm just curious.


Also for all of you wondering, I plan on spending 550 bucks on this (prices will drop most likely by then)

MSI K8T Neo-V mobo.
Sempron 2600+
Two MSI (hopefully sapphire will get more to newegg) ATI 550pro tv tuner cards.
1x 512mb crucial ram.
200gb seagate barracuda
ATI Radeon 9600se (when my friend upgrades his computer, he'll just have that lying around so i might aswell put it in there)

All in an antec case (basically because it comes with a 350watt smartpower).

If I am not running anything else I don't see why this computer couldn't do the job, just restart it once a week or so to keep it stable.

That is a neat idea. I didn't know that you could do that either. I have put in a Hauppauge WinTV card in my wife's computer connected to an antenna. She gets the best reception in the house (I haven't figured out why yet). I also have watched Bit Torrents i.e. The 4400 & Dead Like Me on the TV downstairs by sharring the file to a laptop connected to the TV with an S-video ant the audio from the laptop too. The sound loses a bit of volume but works well.
