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?
