thanks for answering my questions. Here is a batch of new ones..heh, I am such a newbie:
-I notice you offer front acces USB, Firewire. How exactly does that work? I've never really worked with the new cases with front access USB,firewore. Do I run a cable connecting the front acces port to the back through a PCI slot? Do I need to rewire or resolder anything?
-Similar to above question, how will the front access buttons (the five optional buttons) work?
-Any possible way to include one more harddrive?
-Is there a mailing list?
-I'll glady sort through questions in this thread and make a faq if you want one made. Actually, I'll sort through anyways, just to answer my other questions....but just tell me if you want it.
Question for Forum users:
-Let's say I have a 9700 all in wonder. What would be the ideal connection to a TVorHDTV to produce the best quality picture on the TVorHDTV.
-If I have H3D card and Radeon 9700, will I be able to play a DVD while recording a show at DVD quality?
-I guess this is the setup I am sort of thinking about: I am going to use a coaxial splitter and split the tv cable line into two. One going into the HTPC and one going into the TV. Connect the HTPC to one of the TV ins of the the TV. To watch a DVD or dvix, I can just switch the channel to the ext (or video 1,2,3) channel. To record a show, I can do the same (record a TV show on the ext channel and watch TV on another normal cable channel at the same time!!). Would there be any problems with this setup?
