My HTPC has the following:
Case: Antec SLK3700-BQE
PSU: Fortron Source Silent Solution 400w
....
Update to my post above-
The 120mm fan in the PSU went out so I replaced it with an Antec 350w.

I'm trying to wrangle one of these for something less than $500 as it would be better than simply a 17"LCD and it would let me navigate MP without powering on the big-screen just for music!

Also, my sig shows that main rig as well as the SFF box I built for use in the bedroom.

Hi Frodo,

I noticed that you have the same TV-card as I do; Hauppage PVR-350.
I am seeing no live picture from TV-Out in MediaPortal, only a test screen on the TV with vertical colour lines... Works perfectly with live picture in WinTV2K from Hauppage...
I presume it works nicely in your PC within MP? Could you please post your important card specific settings so I might copy them in my setup and make it work.

Oh by the way this is complex SW so please be very specific.

Thanks

Morten
