I am coming home from Afghanistan in a few weeks, and the question has come up as to wether or not to get Cable TV at the new place. Before I deployed, the only channels the wife and I really watched was the Food Network, The Filipino Channel, Sci-Fi, the History Channel, Discovery Channel, and the various cartoon networks and Nickelodion when the kids were visiting. Cable TV costs a bit much for all of 8 channels plus local news. My TV has HDMI input and (I think) an input for a monitor cable. Is there a way that I can set up my desktop to stream those channels to the tv and utilize the home theater system that I have? If so, is there a way to use the remote to change channels?
