My Dad has recently bought a new Asus Desktop computer. I had a look at it and I saw so much.
It Has:
-An HDMi Port (WOW)
-Firewire
-Heaps of USB 2.0 ports.
-8.1 Channel surround sound audio ports

Yet he wanted to give up Windows Vista Premium OS for Windows XP Home SP3 2002 Edition.
Oh My Gosh!

Not quite sure what you are trying to point out.

HDMI ports have been fairly common on mid to high end motherboards for ~2 yeras now.

He He He.
Oh well. Just pointin it out.
I like HDMI. Very high quality.
How could an HDMi enabled device such as a DVD Recorder be viewed on Windows XP.

It can't. The HDMI on the computer is for output only, not input.

He wasnt trying to "lay into you" its true most computers only have a HDMI output port especially if its onboard HDMI.

What model motherboard (or otherwise computer) are you using? Does it come with some sort of TV tuner card perhaps? thats the only way I can think of having a HDMI input on a pc.

Id be interested to know what board as well, but does sound like there'd be some sort of encoder in the system to support an HDMI input. Be handy for various video work :)

Had a very quick Google but cant find any Asus boards with anything like it....

Asus do have a soundcard that takes HDMI input, adds sound, and then puts it out through another HDMI port. An interesting way of doing things, I wonder if this Asus PC has such a card installed and so perhaps it's not the motherboard supplying the port?
