Connect PC to AV Receiver
I am wanting to something that I am sure is possible, but unsure how to. I have a Home theatre system with digital inputs and outputs etc. I want to have a dedicated PC that is integrated to the Home theatre system via the AV Receiver. The idea is that I want to be able to access the PC via a wireless network to record TV to the PC's hard drive in the best possible quality (Component and optical). I want to be able to have a library of my DVD's on the hard drive to watch thru the TV as well.
I am looking to purchase all necessary hardware to build this PC. The idea is that it will be controlled via my laptop with VNC or similar. My question is this, What hardware do I need to purchase? I have a HDTV and decoder so I don't really need a TV tuner card. Is it possible to have the Component inputs feeding into the PC directly to record to HDD and component out to the TV direct? I want to utilise optical quality sound the same way also.
Any suggestions? Can i purchase a motherboard that does this or what other components can I purchase? Any help is much appreciated.

PC AV output required
I've hit a similar obsticle.
I want to buy a dual monitor video card so I can connect my computer to (1)touchscreen, and (2)Monitor/Projector.
The PC Monitor2 will be connected to a Yamaha RX-V365 AV Reciever, and from there to projectors, monitors and speakers around the room. The only option available which will suit my needs is the audio/video composet phono connections.
For audio, I will be using a Twin Phono to 3.5mm Stereo Jack Lead - no problem!
For video, I need a cable with orange Phono connection on one side, and a connection on the other side to connect to the PC.
However, I cant find a dual monitor video card which supports Phono Jack!!
1)Does anybody know of a Dual Monitor Video Card with Phono jack?
2)Is it possible for me to install two standard video cards into my PC (one with phono jack), and set these to Monitors 1 & 2 respectively?
3)Is there a cable out there with the right connections on each end? Ok, I could possibly use a VGA to RCA adaptor, but (as in the attached image) do I need to connect BOTH S-Video & Comp Video or just one of them? and will VGA reduce my resolution?
Thanks for your time.
