    Upgrading HTPC, what sound card to get?

    x2. What kiwi said! If you want HD audio, and a more-than adequate GFX card, definitely go with the new ATI 5670 (i'm their new poster boy) and guess what? It's less than $100 for each manufacturer on newegg! Seriously, you can't go wrong with that deal...

    [ATI] ATI 5670 supports TrueHD & DTS-MA and other info

    I'm sure most of you know this by now (I searched the forums to see if anyone else posted this info, so hopefully this can help people decide now that HD audio is supported) - but just in case you don't - this is very good news for all of us HTPC owners. By itself, the videocard is definitely...

    msj33, hmm, so upgrading the current drivers to the ATI HDMI by realtek, solved the problem? Just to clarify, when you said fix the problem was that on WinXP SP3 or was that with your aforementioned problem that it would work in Windows 7 but not in Moving Pictures? jof, SPDIF does indeed...

    Operating System Windows7 and Onkyo owners

    hey that's cool! I should of mentioned above just for clarification to others: so before on Windows XP SP3 via HDMI to the receiver(606) there would be a short delay before the sound hit the receiver and would make clicking noises (switches turning on and off) when scrolling through the menu...

    Operating System Windows7 and Onkyo owners

    Using WinXP Sp3 and Mediaportal 1.1 and using a Onkyo 606 receiver via HDMI (port 1), I noticed that the receiver would "click" a lot because it was not getting active sound through it - so it was thus "clicking" on and off when it was receiving sound. Very irritating. Especially on the Main...

    Operating System WXP or Vista or Windows 7 (x86 or x64)

    Thanks for the informative reply. So, as a student, you can buy Windows 7 (legal copy) for $27. So I did and installed it and decided to test MediaPortal on it and compare it to 7MC. After a good couple of solid hours of testing and examing, and comparing, I think I'll have to stick it...

    Operating System WXP or Vista or Windows 7 (x86 or x64)

    everyone is saying, Win7 86? If have the hardware, why not 64? I mean, that way you would have more RAM available to apps/games/etc. Or am i wrong?

    Completed semi-inexpensive HTPC setup

    So I gave Moving Pictures another shot. I really liked it for XBMC better, but not bad at all though. So tell me, is there a way to make the movie listings show the "The" part of the movie, so instead "Curse of the Golden Flower" it would be "The Curse of the Golden Flower". That would be...

    (Old) My Emulators

    correct me if I'm wrong: there is NOT a way to put thumnails to PC games is there? Also just a suggestion for my emulators under games, on "List" view. In the configuration you can put information text about the rom, and also rate it out of 10 - but all that shows up under the "List" view...
