Hi, This is a great list, but I've got one small thing to add. When I got serious about setting up an HTPC, one of the biggest problems I had was input peripherals. An old-school USB keyboard had obvious limitations - being tethered to the machine and rather ugly when not in use. Plus I still needed a pointing device. So I...

Actually, the 2250 is for Clear-QAM capture and one set-top box. (DirecTV receiver) The Colossus 2 is for my cable STB until I can figure out which streaming services give me the programs I want to watch. Once that's done, then the Colossus will do VCR capture and the 2250 will do LaserDisc capture - until I get my entire video...

WOW, its been a couple years since i stated this thread. I think a Windows 10 update started causing problems. I've reinstalled Windows, updated all drivers and firmware, pulled out the HVR-1800 to test with Linux, and bought an WimTV HD Quad, and switch to all OTA. I'm trying to look at other optimizations and options before I get...

Its now 3.5 years later and this system is still going strong. No hardware or software changes except for updating MP whenever a new stable is released. On the latest 1.15 now (it didn't like the 1.14 one), and still on windows 8.1. I didn't bother updating to win 10 as its been working so well I didn't want to rock the boat with a...

They are glued to the board with double sided adhesive tape. Tape that is used to mount mirrors or similar with foam rubber between the two adhesive sides. No vibrations will make it to the board and the tape really is strong enough.

No idea if you're still around, but I'd love to know if you've had any issues with a VM doing the TV tuning? I tried a Win7 and Win10 VM with my TV tuner passed through via Unraid 6 and it would always drop packets when tuned to HD channels via DVB-T2. SD channels always seemed to be ok.

I have the silverstone GD07B and I really like it. No front memory card reader. It takes 2x front 5.25" and a lot of 3.5" drives. The only bad point is the bottom mounted filter is a HUGE pain to remove for cleaning.

Thanks Jay for stepping in and your suggestion! So it's possible that I create some kind of corridor by just 1 intake hole and 1 exhaust with fan and that in the rest of my compartment, the hot air is accumulated?

Hi, If persuading your wife that 3D is the future to be able to buy a new TV set; I would like advice you not to use this as an argument. I have watched quite some people pay extra money for 3D features on new TV's and since: 1) 3D was a commercial hype 2) there is no standard for 3D 3) the extra cost to create/transport 3D content...

As of august 2013 we've moved into our new home. And of course, the mediacenter moved with us. Lately I've been installing it. The idea is to have as much functionality with as less cable clutter in sight. To achieve said goals this is where it has been going: Front view I´m kind of done with the centerspeaker. My two floorstanding...

I'm also concerned about EM radiation, so I need some sort of shielding for that. Everything will also have to be "earthed" to the power supply. One idea I had was to use 2mm thick aluminum panels (if I can find them) for the actual box. The book "covers" will have linen cloth applied to the outside surfaces with epoxy, and the...

If I may give you some suggestions; if you use an serperate graphic card, go for an Intel i3 CPU. Much more performance and it uses less power as fas as I know.. Also, the CPU cooler is a bit to much in my opinion.. Maybe you can buy a cheaper one, and investigate it in a 128GB SSD, and a bit schraper 5400 rpm HDD. You should not...

Hi. If you need TV on more places than you have Antenna available, a Client/Server setup is the only way to go. It always is possible to use the TV Server and one Client on the same PC and other clients on other PC using the TV Server on first PC...
