Default Re: Do you have a HTPC?

My TV is a Grundig CRT, so best resolution is 800x600 via S-video.
I change to "large fonts" to make web surfing easier, but honestly use it rarely for that. The HTPC is more like a VCR than a STB. I use it to record and to watch recorded shows or my DVDs, but if just watching TV I use the TV itself as the picture is a little nicer.
Naturally if I had a big HDTV Plasma or LCD TV with a DVB connector it would be different.
