So I just purchased my HTPC last night and spent 6 hours putting everything together and loading the software that came with evrything. I have Media Center 7 running with some coverart from movies stored on my WD 1TB External Drive.
I now need help setting this thing up so I can rip my BD and DVDs. I plan on getting a Boxee Box in Decemeber for my 100 inch Projector set-up Panny AE900U and Onkyo AVR running a 5.1 Set-up everything via HDMI. Also have a PS3 as well connected.
I will hook my HTPC to the Onkyo then to the projector until I get the Boxee and then I will tranfer files etiher via the Network or off external Drives to the Boxee have not decided yet becuase of cabling issues right now.
My HTPC Set-up:
Phenom II x2 560 Black Edition Unclocked
LG Super Multi Blu-ray Combo Drive
MSI 785GM-P45 AM3 785G MATX MB
Samsung F3 HD103SJ 1TB 7,200 RPM SATA 3.0GB - HDD
XFX Radeon HD5450
Iogear USB Wireless Keyboard - Have not opened yet might want something different some type of Harmony Remote if possible
I want the easiet set-up possible with Coverart and ability to rip and play blue rays and normal DVDs. No TV shows needed. Music file support would be great as well.
I have read a bunch of the tutorials but they all seem to conflict in one area or another.
I just want it to work.
Thanks for your help!
