i am in the country and wireless is expensive. you sound like you have a good set up, I have a tele with stuff too but never been enthused about
setting it up with my pc.
I am in the country too, in the middle of the woods surrounded by forests. Population 1100+.
I have DSL internet, don't even need cable internet like Comcast, 3+MB/S speeds are the minimum requirement. Most companies offer that for around
My modem is also a wireless router, my local ISP provides those, very convenient for cpus upstairs.
My set up in the living room is not wireless, I have an ethernet cable going from modem to cpu, then a VGA cable, or HDMI cable for modern cpus, into
my LCD HDTV. The sites I use stream all shows & movies in real time, no need to sit & wait for it to load.... sometimes I have to wait a few minutes,
If you have a modern TV, LCD, LED, etc, then you can do the same set up.
If you have a fat heavy TV, you'll need a TV tuner video card in your cpu to do the same, and those TVs are analog not digital picture. I did it
years back and it was fine, I have a modern TV now and it's better.
If you have an internet provider that reaches you in the woods, you are all set.
