    After reading about MediaPortal and some other HTPC applications a few months ago, I decided that the components from my old computer would make for a great base to a HTPC. After having the unit for about a month two months now, I was asked to give a little information about the process. So, I put together a little webpage with information and pictures about my plans/build/upgrade.

    Give it a look. Hopefully it will help inspire someone who might be on the fence about building a HTPC - im extremely happy with mine right now, especially how one box can easily replace several seperate, expensive pieces of AV equipment.

    Note: I'm keeping an online changelog on the page to keep records of all the updates and changes i've done and will do to the box. The hardware may be finalized and assembled, but the software is a constantly changing adventure. ;)

    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...

    Another update. So the a10 continued to randomly lock up and freeze. I had to remove the battery and reset the CMOS 3 times. Eventually I just got a screen with BIOS Ami details and couldn't even get into the BIOS. In desperation I tried removing the ram one card at a time and refitting it. So I seem to have a faulty ram card as the...
