Anyone using a ThinkPad as a TV?

What receiver would you recommend?

A thinkpad 755CD would do fine with a TV Tuner. Oh wait this isnt 1994.

Just about any machine should do with a c2d or better. Really, just buy a tiny SBC, possibly an RPI 3 which would suit better. Are you using it as the TV or as a sort of cable box?
Just collecting vintage machines....Thinkpads included.
Have: IBM PC 5150, Tandy 1400LT, Macintosh Portable, Metalis 286(dead), Satellite 200CDS, TP 755C&CDV , 701C, Slimsport 286(deadish/zombie).
New: TI Travelmate 4000E 4/25, AMREL SLT486 (4DX2/66)
