Spdif
good standby function

First of all, I'd go socket 754 and a 64 bit CPU. It's close to the same price for the speed and socket A is now a dead end.

I also think you'll find features like hi-def audio are more common on 754 boards than Socket A and you can get built in DirectX 9 support in hardware.

I have a Jetway I love and there is a 754 version of it. But they didn't put SPDIF on the 754 version of the board. Otherwise it would be perfect.

Look for ATi and NVidea chipset boards that support DirectX 9.
There should also be a DirectX 9 capable VIA chipset on the market some time soon... possibly by the end of the year.

Just look for the features you want and the proper TV out for your setup. Many boards don't have TV out.

That was kinda vague so I did a search on my vender of choice's site. Here are the possible candidates they had. You'll need to research the features to make sure which ones have everything you need since it was just a search based on video/form factor:

This is the board I use but it's socket 939. The A200GDMS version is socket 754 *IF* you can find one... but no SPDIF.

Well, your issue is really weird. Normally, battery should be OK but, who know ? And, if you have something like that : It could be interesting to see if your battery give 3 Volts. Also, if, after 3 days (for example) if you can start your PC manually and, go into the BIOS, motherboard BIOS time could be a good indicator.

Of course this would be the best option, but I guess it’s not that easy to integrate external players into MP2. It was somewhere discussed, but I could not find the related thread.

Perhaps it’s good to look here for WMC skin. In the wiki you find also further infos about setting up the media views. For further discussion it’s better to open another thread. I’ll mark the EPG topic as solved.

Did you see this thread ? The poster in that thread could not get MP's Schedules Direct plugin to work. I tried it on my test system (I don't have a Schedules Direct account), but I could not get it to work either. @framug mentioned that the plugins run no more than once per day, so that may have been my problem. However... I...
