    Wouldn't any MicroATX fit in the case? As far as I know this is what the case is designed for...

    thats why i thought of miniITX coz you dont need anything apart from the board.


    Even thou I have looked before I didnt see that heatsink before, I will look in to that build a computer around the cooler

    Mother Board
    CPU

    How about those, would they run full HD.

    How much memory should I get either 2x1gb or 2x2gb

    hd will play no prob with a x2 3600 so any higher will be fine, the mb may be a prob i'm currently having issues with a similar board(abit fatality) on rc1 stick to the nforce boards if u want an immediate solution, i'm using an asus m2n-mx but it needed an extra fan on chipset cooler in hiper chassis and musn't be installed in an enclosed space.

    You shoul get MB with Ati3200HD iGPU for DXVA support, like Asus M3A78-EMH or Gigabyte GA-MA78GM-S2H (Gigabyte becouse have firewire) + some 45W CPU - AMD Athlon 64 X2 4850e EE maybe.

    I have similar configuration and with SAF you will be able to play FullHD in DXVA mode perfectly.
    But if you want Full HD video + subtitles, you will need more powerfull CPU like Phenom at last until DXVA + subtitles will be possible under MP.

    1 x Gigabyte GA-MA78GM-DS2H AMD 780G Socket AM2+ Motherboard
    1 x AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual Core 4800+ 2.50GHz (oem AM2)
    2 x Arianet 2GB PC2-6400 DDR2 SDRAM

    I've just ordered that little lot, will that all work, and will it play full HD

    If anyone ever experiences the above, I found a fix. Removing and reinstalling MP-TVSeries fixed it. It must have gotten corrupted during the reinstall of MP. I also had to do the same with TRAKT which had some issues too that were not apparent at the time. All is well once again. :cool:

    Sorry for too little information. When I tried to create the debug log, it didn't work. I don't know why. I could not play a video to record this. Suddenly I couldn't access the disc menus with the internal blu-ray player either. Since I didn't want to try any longer, I loaded an old image from drive C. After that everything worked...
