Looking to build a nice htpc and know nothing!
So today i was going to order a tivo romeo + dune or popcorn hour for my media, but just foundout you can add cable cards to htpc's... i never knew.
So im looking to build a nice live tv/dvr/media playback htpc..
My budgets about $1,000-$1,400
what i need is,
1. Ability to add a timewarner tv cable card with atleast 4-6 tuners
2. Ability to playback and media i have, avi, mkv, dvd iso, bluray iso, 3d
3. Completely lag free, silent, low energy.
5. Nice remote
So far the only things i have picked out are,
Samsung 840 120gb SSD
for the OS
WD Red 2TB nas drive
For live tv dvr
WD Red 3TB nas drive x2
For Media playback of mine.
Ceton InfiniTV 6 PCIe - 5205-DCT06IN-PCIE - Six-tuner Card
For a cable card.
Have no clue what would be a good case, cpu, mb for a htpc or even which OS to use.
