A few years ago, [livejournal.com profile] the_gneech bought me for Christmas a VHS/DVD player/burner so I could transfer our VHS tapes to DVD. Well, it seems not to function very well anymore.

Couple with this the fact that TV signals are switching to digital in February, I've been doing some research (uh-oh).

I'm trying to find out if it's possible and how much it would cost to rig my computer as a DVR (and possibly hook up the VHS for transferring), HDTV receiver, and how much it would cost to do it. I've got a 22" widescreen monitor that is HD signal capable. I've seen many options. What got me thinking about all this is I really don't want to go out and spend 4 digits on a TV that's not even going to last as long as our still-functional analog set. And the fact that I've already got a DVD burner on the computer and a decent-sized monitor capable of processing digital signals...kinda makes me question why I would want to.

Any thoughts?
