Large LCD monitors are becoming affordable. As many of us use our PCs in our bedroom, there's no reason why you couldn't invest in a 23¨ LCD monitor for your work, then use your PC to play recorded TV, DVDs and your audio CDs, after you've finished your work. You don't need a separate DVD player, your computer has a large hard drive which can be used to record TV programmes and with a 23¨ inch monitor, it should be wide enough to show HD content, in full.
GB-PVR 0.99.12 is a media centere tool that's been around for a while. It's a free application that will enable you to schedule and record TV programmes to your computer, play and manage your DVDs and much more. Of course, you'll need a TV capture card (or USB device) to grab the TV in the first place.
