Hello everyone, I am interested in getting a AV receiver to drive my sound from my HTPC to my speakers, however I really don't want to have to control it via an IR blaster from the HTPC. This, in my hands, is really slow and subject to failures (IR signal isn't just right, cat moves the blaster, dust leads to poor signal etc.)...

Here's a log, I went into Moving Pictures, and started playing Pacific Rim, and skipped ahead. It took about 10 seconds to get audio back, and about another 10 seconds to get video. After that it seemed to perform okay, with only a few glitches\stutters\whatever you wanna call it. I've tried running it with different codecs, no...

Thank you but this didn't help. I think it is not a Mediaportal problem because it happens every time when I put the Computer in standby. So it happens without Mediaportal is running.

Just wondering what your guys views are on being able to return PC components as faulty when they cannot work as intended due to bad drivers?

So I was still having I/O errors whenever I tried to make a system image using Win7 Backup. Tried reformatting PC twice and doing low level write + read destructive HDD scan tests. Then I thought hmmm might be a bad SATA cable -> Problem seems to be solved now (hopefully).

I use an N36L for my tv server which has 2 BGT3595 and it will happily stream 4-6 HD channels simultaniously. I see your also from Nottingham :) so if you happen to be using sky it will do that stuff too. I use Windows 7 though. Just realised how old this was! i'm sure you will have done it by now!

Really good motherboard feature for HTPC. You can plug your bluray or playstation directly into the HTPC! I think the cheapest board with HDMI input switching / passthrough is ASRock Z87-Pro4 http://www.asrock.com/mb/Intel/Z87 Pro4/ Looks like it costs about $105 USD after rebate...

Hi Atomic, The software I use is called Second Backup - IIRC, it was recommended to me by Paranoid Delusion. I think I used a trial version first and then bought it once I found out that it did what I wanted. It certainly wasn't expensive and it just 'ticks' away in the background until needed. You don't realise it is there, or is...

MP1 MP2 Your Opinions? DE
In case of a TV Server only, think about Intel DN2800MT which is a valuable board with low power consumption. With the DN2800 processor you have to select the right receiver card - not all PCIe-cards work right out of the box. I set up a pictured building guide only for my TV Server...
