Well Lets see live in a tiny area with almost no space and I am a cheap [bleep]. So since I already own a DVD player I was wondering how to connect it to my computer (which does not seem to have the same connections) rather than 1. buying a TV or 2. getting the beautiful DVD SATA Burner of my dreams and spending several hours installing it.

Well since you don't have Windows MCE(Media Center Edition) and don't have a TV tuner card, i really don't know what you want here. It sounds like you want to run your computer as a TV. Buy a Happauge TV tuner card and watch TV all day Long.Problem is the happauge card costs $70. I do not know what you need a DVD burner for other than to burn the recorded TV to disks.

Recently installed everything FiOS. Can I connect a set-top box (STB) directly to my computer (XP) to watch on the monitor and record on the disk? Verizon says USB port probably is not functional yet.... Don't think I have a TV capture card, but why would I need one out of the STB? Can capture Hi8 video from camcorder. Have HD DVD, HD, and standard Motorola STBs.

Also, the same to a LiteOn DVD recorder (LVW 5045).

TIA
