I need help-I have spent a LOT of time trying to educate myself, and am now more confused! So here is what I would like to do, and I am hoping some smart person can inform me, please:
I am going to buy a new TV, and I would like to get rid of a cable box and DVR that I previously used on the old TV in this room. (I will still have Time Warner Cable that can be connected to this TV, and 3 other TV's in the house).
So I would like to find a way to schedule ahead of time- and record - TV programs that I can eventually watch on this new TV.
I have a desktop computer (with Windows XP) that I could record TV shows on (I THINK?- does a desktop need a TV TUNER to pick up network TV shows/series???).
Also, I have WIFI throughout the house. I would like to wirelessly connect the new TV to whatever I will be using to record my TV shows.
Also, I would like the new TV to be able to get INTERNET TV wirelessly (and it would be nice if I could get an internet browser on the TV, but not necessary). If needed, as a last resort, I could get a laptop with Windows 7 if that works better for recording TV shows.
So should I get a blu-ray player with built in wifi, and connect it to the TV, or would a ROKU be better?
What else do I need to buy to to get the internet wirelessly to the new TV?
What do I need to buy, and connect, to record TV shows/series so that I will be able to watch them wirelessly on the new TV?
I will be so grateful for your input and suggestions!
