What is required to make use of Ubuntu as a TELEVISION
I desire to periodically utilize my ubuntu computer system as a tv. I remain in the United States and also would love to supervise the air (HD) TELEVISION programs. The excellent scenario would certainly be the TELEVISION show in one window with some computer mouse & keyboard controls for quantity & network. I do not desire or require a "from the sofa" remote driven user interface.
What equipment will I require to acquire? What software should I install?
