I have a 22" 1080p HD monitor that I used to use to stream netflix from my computer. Now I want to:

Use my computer (or a Roku) to stream Hulu & Netflix. Then also use it to connect to a over the air box to get over the air HD tv.

Problems: I have no speakers on the monitor and only 1 HD input, 1 DVI and 1 VGA. I have a pair of external desktop speakers that I would like to use.

Any suggestions? I'm a poor college student so solutions

How can I get over the air TV on this? – Snow_Mac Mar 12 '12 at 1:37
Use a XBMC supported USB TV Tuner, or have a tuner on your network: – G Koe Mar 12 '12 at 1:38
Same goes for adding storage, either use a shared folder on the network or a USB hard drive. – G Koe Mar 12 '12 at 1:39
