I would rather use a HDMI transmitter and receiver to "stream" from my computer to my TV. those are pretty much unhackable (and you would have to have someone really P.O.ed at you for them to want to go to the trouble to hack your one system, not to mention they would need an identical receiver and transmitter to do so).
Well Jeannie that's good enough for me as we pay enough for the Foxtel let alone anything else.
There is one of the girls here at work who boasts about 900 channels on the pay for stuff and for the life of me there are not enough hours in the day to do what I want to do let alone wade through 900 TV channels.
Plus it is good to know too that they are so easily hacked cos I don't want that crap ploughed into my machine.

Windows 7 Professional 64 bit

We have the Panasonic 1Tb hard drive blu ray recorder - we have never recorded on a blu ray disk and probably never will. Currently trying to remember why we bought it. We're buying another, but this time will get the 1Tb hard drive model without the blu ray recorder, for $475 at Costco.

John I can't help you with the Smart thing with only 3 brain cells.

I have used a 40 T.V. for a long time with just the computer hooked up HDMI HD 1080 and separate speakers. The internal speakers are okay but not as good as they should be in my case. If it doesn't come from the internet I don't see it. I quite paying for junk T.V. years ago.
What I like to mention that might help is Screen on Screen. I don't have it and I wish I did. It might come with all new T.V.'s I really don't know. That way you could be doing something with one computer and use half the screen and something with another computer using the other part of the screen at the same time. Could be handy or at least groovy. Watch a movie and post at the same time using the same screen.

Ok we still might get a Blu ray but only for playing Blu rays - not into recording stuff that much anyway.
Jack I know what you mean by that screen on screen and I suppose it would come in handy but again it isn't essential really.
All in all I reckon just as long as the picture quality is there we will be happy if it happens to be that they are snort devices then it is all bonus eh?

Is HD really full?
I have a Dell Inspiron with 500G and only 20.4G left. Doing a rough count of my system's "properties", I am using about 200G. Is it possible that there is something wrong with my HD, that is using up space unnecessarily? I ran a Chkdsk and Scannnow, but it was clean. Do I need to erase a lot of my...
