    I put small tape squares over them, they now both look a very dull purple when flashing. They were blinding before :?

    I'm just finishing the build on my HTPC and I'm using a Thermaltake Bach case. It has bright LEDs for power and the hard drive and the blue one is like one of those LED flashlights!!

    As a test I took the front panel off, removed the LEDs and painted over the end (not the entire thing) with whiteout. I used whiteout because I could remove it easily. Guess what? Just blocking the light out of the end works great. Next I'm going to try black marker on the end. If it looks good I'll use permanent marker. And as a last resort, I'll use plack paint.

    I think the permanent marker will work well because it should be semi-transparent. I have a lot of other things to do first so for now I have funky looking white spots from the whiteout when it's turned off. LOL

    Great Guide! I have about 20 hours so far in this and love the product. Since you have a very good grasp of it can you point me to how we record tv shows without recording reruns? I know this is probably very basic but anywhere I post on the forum on this is met with a deafening silence. I am sure Mediaportal can do this easily since...
