    I have the latest C2D Mini and would like to use a 32" LCD for my monitor. Is it possible to work on the computer and have satellite TV going at the same time? If so, how?

    TIA :)

    If the TV has picture-in-picture capability then you could use the Mac and view the satellite TV in an inset window. If no PIP then you're gonna need a third-party solution like a EyeTV Hybrid to view the TV content while using the Mac.

    Read up on EyeTV ... it says it cannot accept HDTV from satellite or cable.

    Any other way to watch HDTV and work on the puter?
