Im in the planning stages of my HT and would love to have some sort of media storage system. Im guessing that this can be done with an HTPC. My current setup uses a Mitsubishi 65" RPTV with no HDMI inputs. Would it be worth building the HTPC now and using an HDMI to component converter. IM looking at a good year until the theater is done. My goal is superbowl next year.

there are video cards that can output component, though they are becoming less common. typically the feature is called HDTV out, and uses a small pigtail to go from the card to three component jacks.

are you planning on a new television?
