I've been reading around the many, many 'Build your 3D HTPC' articles & blogs that have been popping out and trying to get the information I need to build my Full 3D HTPC. However, one thing that most of these posts are lacking is an "Economy" Build - so to speak.
My situation is this: I bought the Dune Smart D1 recently and soon after setting it up, I found out that it does not support Full HD 3D (Full 3D Blu-ray ISO Playback). This has led me to the *only* solution that appears to be presently available for full 3D Blu-ray ISO playback - A 3D HTPC.
I don't want to spend too much money on this 3D HTPC build and don't really care for any fancy & frills ... I'm trying to build the "Cheapest" possible Full 3D HTPC.
These are the requirements that I need it to meet:
Full 3D Blu-ray ISO Playback
HD Audio Bitstreaming (DTS-HD, TrueHD)
Playback of all other HD Video/Audio (MKV, M2TS, AVCHD, Blu-ray/DVD ISO, etc).
I would like the HTPC to have HDMI 1.4 support so it can connect directly to my Samsung PN63C8000 via HDMI 1.4
I already have spare hard drives lying around for the OS (Windows 7 x64 Ultimate) and MCE / PDVD10. So the component that I need to buy would be:
I don't believe I need any other components (Please correct me if I'm wrong); and I don't really care about the Form Factor either. As long as I can get the cheapest possible combination of components to do what I need them to do - I'm Good!!
Any advice or suggestion would be great appreciated.
