    I originally signed up with Afrihost for home Internet to insulate me from Telkom but Telkom got so bad that I switched to another ISP who provided a direct wireless link (no fibre where I live).

    A computer dealer suggested to me that a computer screen with HDMI in should work for DSTV HD. That seems to me a little too easy an option. Is there some catch? Has anyone tried this? It makes logical sense since the PVR / STB contain receivers and HDMI in to a TV screen works for using the...
