    Dont laugh!



    Compaq Deskpro (desktop) case
    Intel Pentium III 600MHZ
    320MB RAM
    80GB 7200rpm HDD (E: Windows XP Pro)
    10GB 7200rpm HDD (C: Windows '98)
    Sony DVD-RW/+RW/RAM x16
    Powercolour Ati Radeon 9250 128MB (VGA, DVI, S-Video)
    Leadtek Winfast TV 2000XP RM + Coolcommand remote

    All hooked up to a Netgem I-Player multimedia set top box for streaming music, movies, internet on the TV via Buffalo 16 port Ethernet hub.

    Also on the network is a Compaq Armada M300 Notebook (similar spec as the dekpro) and 4 other not-worth-mentioning sub-500MHZ desktops around the house.


    MP runs exceedingly well on this system to be honest, while i save for something more lofty! My dream is for piped files and internet to every room in the house.

    Nice little HTPC box that does everything I've set out to do: Music, movies, TV, radio, streaming media, Emulators, etc... Nothing beats being able to watch a movie and in a few clicks on the remote, I can swap over to playing Mortal Kombat through an emulator and some Modded Xbox controllers. :D

    HTPC Specs...

    See signature for specs...

    The Opteron is running at stock speed (2.4ghz) although at a lower Vcore (1.2 volts)... The undervolting helps my Zalman CNPS7000A-CU cool my passive 7600GS, which is quite nice.

    The 120mm exhaust fan on my X-QPack is connected to a fan controller in front, thus making the system pretty silent.

    Only two mods left to do: Cutting out the exhaust fan grill (honeycomb) out of the case and replacing with a standard 120mm fan grill ; replacing the 120mm fan with an Arcting Cooling 60 CFM / 32 DBA fan.

    Cheers!

    My sig says it all. I do have Media Portal running on Windows XP Pro x64 flawlessly. Still can't figure out the MCE keyboard and remote to work in this OS though.






    Intel 940 @ 4.1
    Asus P5ND2-SLI
    XFX 7300GS
    Realtek HD Audio 5.1
    2 GIG DDR II (OCZ Value)
    360 GIG SATA
    Power Color 550 MCE
    Cyberlink remote
    Arctic Freezer 9
    x64 and yes it works like a charm!!!!

  • About The Project

    The vision of the MediaPortal project is to create a free open source media centre application, which supports all advanced media centre functions, and is accessible to all Windows users.

    In reaching this goal we are working every day to make sure our software is one of the best.

             

  • Support MediaPortal!

    The team works very hard to make sure the community is running the best HTPC-software. We give away MediaPortal for free but hosting and software is not for us.

    Care to support our work with a few bucks? We'd really appreciate it!
