My System Specs

Default Conveting an older pc into a HTPC

I have an older 1.5 gb IBM net vista and I was thinking of converting it into a very simple HTPC for my parents, they have a quite old TV that still has a great picture ( the tuning goes out a tiny bit now and then) and of course my Dad doesn't want to part from it so I was wondering if there is a way for me to convert this old IBM into a sort of converter tuner using my TV card that I don't use on my pc and just plugging it into there DVD vcr combo. then I could just upload allot of tv episodes onto my usb stick and transfer them onto that PC so they could watch missed TV shows. and this could be done whre do I start or is there any websites out there that show how to do this with older tvs? this of course would save me from burning dvds of TV episodes for them to watch
