I'm getting a laptop thats gonna be used side by side with desktop. It doesn't come with a tv tuner card or anything but i wanna be able to watch directv on it in hd. It's got a 1920x1080 screen on it and has a hdmi port along with the other usual ports. We already have one directv hd dvr in the house but i want to be able to watch live tv and recorded shows on my laptop. So my question is what the best and some what cheapest way to make this possible. I'm pretty sure i will have to have a directv reciever setup some where near my computer but as far as receiving the signal from the receiver im not to sure about. I'm not sure in the last few years whats new technology has come out to do this. i know they are coming out with new stuff all the time. If I have to buy something for my laptop to be able to view the signal from the directv receiver thats not a problem I just hope it doesn't get to expensive.
