Not if you use extra long audio and video cables. S-Video cables can be purchased in lengths up to 100 ft, and a standard video cable can be made by using coax with RCA connectors on the ends. There are also extensions available for S-Video cables. Depending on where a PC is located, it may not be too difficult to run wire to a TV in another room.
I can play DivX through TVs in either the room where the PC is located, or in the living room. I ran audio and S-Video wires through the baseboard to connect to the living room TV.
Same here, and I don't even need a long S-Video cable; I have a PC stationed in the living room.
And another thing, with people investing more into their computer setup, I find that video game consoles become obsolete too quickly. I used to argue with my brother when Sega Genesis came out that it was much cooler than a computer; boy, was I wrong! With a game console, the technology only goes so far. Compare my P4 2.4GHz, 1GB RAM, Radeon 8500 to a PS2 and the PS2 doesn't even come close! I find more people investing their hard-earned money into their computers because a computer can do it all (except cook for you and go to the bathroom for you). Hook your computer up to your Plasma TV, add some surround sound speakers, and you have a home theater! Of course, you'll need the proper parts in order to make it really enjoyable (i.e. good graphics card, good sound card, DVD-ROM).
Don't get me wrong, game consoles are still fun, but compared to a computer, I'll take the computer.
No, I like women.
