I have a Philips FreeLine PC with Windows XP Media Centre 2005 installed. Can I connect my Freeview box to it to watch digital TV? Thanks a lot.

Your best bet is to buy a Freeview PCI TV Card such as the TwinHan Freeview DTB-ter PCI TV card - it comes with remote control, PVR etc.

The superior DTV-ter D+A card (Digital + Analogue) also has input/output sockets and can be used to watch and/or record VCR programs and games console displays.

If you don't want a PCI card you could always go in for an external USB one like click here & click here.
