What do you mean "... to control everything through the computer"?

If you want to record from the ntl box onto your hard drive, maybe even have a PVR solution, you will have to lead the video signal via the computer.

You will still need to use your NTL remote to change channels however.

The Plasma TV will support multiple inputs so if you are not interested in PVR, you would connect the ntl box and the computer separately... and probably achieve better quality.
