Hey there,
Building a htpc, but i'm stuck on case + remote issues.
For case im thinking the Silverstone LC20 or LC20m. The lc20m has an imon infrared receiver, and both have a vfd display. For remote i want to use a Logitech Harmony 525 to replace all of our remotes.
First of all, it seems the VFD doesn't work in mediaportal at all? Not a big issue, but it looks cool.
Will the harmony 525 emulating a MCE remote (for ease of setup with mediaportal) work with the imon receiver in the LC20m?
Alternatively i'll go with the much cheaper LC20, and use a different IR receiver. However i cant find any at all here, let alone one that is confirmed working with mediaportal.

Being in New Zealand means i have a rather limited range of purchasing options, so PriceSpy - Compare prices for PC parts from New Zealand's online retailers lists pretty much anything thats available here.

Be careful with the LC20, I had over heating issues with this case, but I did have a big cpu and big GFX card inside the case, to handle 1080p media.

I also found the LC20 IR receiver and the harmony remotes were slow to respond.

In the end I dumped my LC20 and bought a bigger Silverstone case, and a MCE remote.

Make sure you do the research before purchasing the LC20 to make sure its going to work for your requirements.
