Michael Arnold: I heard that now you HAVE to have a digital card like you need a cable card from your cable company.
Jody Pope: if only the local cable company here offered cable cards
Jack Mawer: *goes through videos with strange music* *finds tinkernut music* HOORAY!
Wario W: or it may be a 2.6 Ghz new motherboard into a old pc chassis :S
серёга белолапотков: а я с россии еххеехехехехехехехехеххе
thetechnicalbouse: If you wan't to watch TV for free on computer and your phone :) Then TVcatchup is free and has quite a few standard channels :)
thetechnicalbouse: He means old as in not used anymore, like say you buy a new computer, what do you do with your previous one. And if you are running vista, that doesn't count as old, that creates is own class, which is called crap :D
Ricky X: God,i see these videos and get interested but find out i have to buy a bunch of stuff and get pissed.
jaifra78: good video but the background music is really annoying
josh nolting: actually an old computer could classify as an unused one or what you described. i have a five year old pc and it has a dual-core 2.8 gHz processor. just because its fast doesnt mean its not old.
OREOGAM3R: Aw, I only got Windows 7. Looks like I can't do this.
manfocused: "I think it's common sense that if you leave your computer on 24/7, you will see an increase in your electric bill"
I know that. And that's why I asked would doing this increase it by "a lot." I've searched online for answers, but the answers are never the same. Some say my bill won't increase much (an extra $5/$10 a month ain't much), some said it will increase A LOT (an extra $50+ a month).
cyprezz: I think it's common sense that if you leave your computer on 24/7, you will see an increase in your electric bill. Desktop computer typically run over 100 watts of electricity. So in just less than 10 hour of on time, you will have used 1 kilowatts of electricity. The going rate of electrically measured in kilowatts is around 12 cents where I live. So if you run this all day long, you will see an extra 5 to 10 dollars per month in your electricity bill.
TriHardzMusic: everyone BY old he means unused stop complaining!!
manfocused: I literally started using my old Dell Dimension E521 as a DVR a couple of weeks ago. I bought a Hauppauge WinTV-HVR-1800 tuner card and installed with Beyond TV DVR software. It works great. I leave the comp on 24/7 so that Beyond TV can record my shows. Will doing this increase my electric bill by a lot?
brickman409: does XBMC have TV card support?
Theminecraftplayerdd: That sucked.
Theminecraftplayerdd: I have a Wii. This is how I'm gonna capture it, now.
ignas2526: This computer does not qualify as an "old computer", it is not the best available, but 2.6Ghz CPU which is probably dual core isn't bad at all, if it was around 1Ghz, then it would be other talk
