Well, I'm taking the leap and planning to build my own HTPC.

The set-up I plan will have a "small" DVD/video sized unit under the TV, connected via Ethernet to a server crammed with music etc under the stairs.

My question is this: all the info I find is biased towards the US for obvious reasons (things have yet to take off in the UK) but does anybody know of a reputable company in the UK that I can talk to about my requirements and will then sell me the kit I need.

My outline idea is for recordable DVD, digital radio, digital satellite TV (not sure if this is possible), a broadband connection (for EPGs etc) and a "CD Player" for the MP3/CD collection (either from HD, the "server" or disc).

And finally - I want to control all this as far as possible with a "normal" remote control or - if pushed - with a wireless mouse and mini (laptop-style) wireless keyboard.

Thanks for any help anybody can give,
