Audio is cheap 2.1 Logitech... Upgrade coming some time in the future.
Controlled by Logitech numpad, but next week I'm upgrading to Harmony 700.

Inside the HTPC I have Zacate platform with 2 x 1 tb hard drives and a 2 tb WD external hard drive sits on top of it.

I built the HTPC inside an old radio... It came out reasonably nice

Thanks!

Dig the setup and your style. I'm going to have to do something like this.

Here's an update to my previously posted setup:

TV: Vizio 47" 1080p 60hz LCD TV

AVR: Onkyo HT-S6300 7.1 System (Only using 5.1 since room is too small)

HTPC:

Case - nMedia 5000b HTPC Case

Ram - 4GB DDR2

CPU - AMD Phenom 9750 Quad Core

Motherboard - Gigabyte GA-MA785GM-US2H

Video Card - Sapphire Radeon 6670 Ultimate (fanless)

Remotes:
Logitech Harmony One
Lenovo N5902

Front-end Software - XBMC (Aeon Nox Skin)

The major upgrades I've made are the video card and the surround setup. With the new video card, I can play most games at high settings, and with the receiver, I can get surround sound when playing games over HDMI. Movies sound better as well (compared to the Logitech Z-5500).

Happy HTPC'ing!

You're able to get HD audio bitstreaming with XBMC? IS there a tutorial on how to do it, or could you briefly explain the settings needed to decode HD audio. Amazing setup by the way! Definitely what I want to have when I own a home. Keep up the great work.

I've read about a lot of people having problems, but it really couldn't be easier. I have it working on two different machines that are hooked to AVRs. Here's my steps, both machines have AMD 6xxx video cards.

Download the latest versions of 32 bit MPC HC, LAV Filters, madVR (optional).

I also use ReClock, but I believe it's completely unnecessary and it works 100% fine without it.

If you have ffdshow audio, shark's, etc, delete it.

Now, I'm going totally by memory, but there's a ton of tutorials and a lot of help out there.

1. Install LAV filters. Install MPC HC. If you use madVR, extract it into it's own folder and run the install.bat.

2. Open MPC HC and pick your renderer under options>output. I click madVR.

3. Under fullscreen I turn off autochange. The main reason I use madVR is because I think it does a better job of switching my projector to the proper format than autochange.

4. Under Internal Filter, I deselect EVERYTHING.

5. Under External Filters, I add LAV Splitter Source, LAV Splitter, LAV Video Decoder and LAV Audio Decoder.

6. Double click LAV Audio and under bitstreaming select every format that your AVR supports. I select DD, DD Plus, DTS, TrueHD and DTS-HD.

That's pretty much it. There's a ton of PQ tweaks you can make to madVR and I'm sure my settings would be much different than yours. But for bitstreaming audio, that's pretty much it. Works perfectly with all formats from LPCM to DTSHD to TrueHD.

If you using XBMC, you'd just need to set up the config files to use an external player, which again is very easy and there are a million tutorials on how to do that too.

Worked like a charm on MPC HC! Thanks!

FWIW, now that it's working on MPC HC with LAV filters, you could download the XBMC DS Player version that's floating around and configure it to using LAV filters for your HD files. That works well too and there's no need to reconfig the filters you already have setup.

Found the link for the latest DSPlayer build, but it seems like you still have to deal with XML (not my forte) in order to set the filter.

Not to be a mooch, but do you know how to set the filters on the DSPlayer build? Thanks.

My onboard video works flawlessly even with blu ray rips...it just lacks the True HD audio and 3d frame packing.


cool looking AVR & CC shelf, how did you run the wires?
bet it sounds good.
?why do you have 2 sets of front speakers?

how do you like the OWM3s I'm concidering these as surrounds?

nice setup. one day I'd like to have a large projecter. how do you like the Epson and how is the PQ compared to a regular 1080TV?
since projectors don't have TV tuners is the HTPC w/ TV tuner all thats required to use the projector as a regular TV?

also the 2 small pieces ontop of HTPC is that a wireless part of the projector?

The small one (piece) looks like you average IR receiver for the remote plugged into and extension cable.

Not really, since the HTPC is off to the side and tucked behind the couch. But if you were going to place it front and center, I'm sure there's a way you could disable it.

The small one is the receiver for my Rii keyboard in an extension USB plug and the big one is the RC6 receiver for my Harmony remote.

The business end of the man cave. HTPC is lower left on the rack. The 70" sharp was my xmas present to myself. All the speakers are DIY, and the amps are in another room.

Very nice!

2 subs? (one down-facing and one front facing?)

The one whose face you don't see is an 18" maelstrom pointed towards the wall. Now no longer made, and thus irreplaceable. Both subs powered by their own 2 kilowatt amp.

Thanks! I got it to look like it does in your screenshot. However, the FPS is down to about 18 or 19. Any idea why? Is there a fix for this? Thanks for the help.

Is actual playback smooth? Because the FPS on DSPlayer also goes haywire on my sistem, but playback is normal. I think it`s a bug.

Very nice setup. How do you like the 70" Sharp? I am considering the 70" or 80" to replace my aging Samsung DLP. What stand are you using for the Sharp? Thanks.

DD, I love that woodworking on those cabinets. Someday I hope to have the space, tools, & inclination to do something like that myself.

Thanks on the woodworking, but I have to confess: I have a Brother in Law who is a very close approximation to Norm Abrams (PBS New Yankee Workshop), shop and all. No way could I output anything like that left to my own devices! The MDF work on the towers/center was done by a professional, I just printed out the plans (LONG thread on HT guide missions acomplished section wwmt's) and had the cabinets made. I veneered them in solid oak, and made the crossovers ($$!) wiring, etc. MY BIL and myself made the subs, they each weigh in over 150 lbs, not including the amps in the other room.

I *LOVE* the sharp 733! For a long time Sharp seemed to be a lagger on the LCD front, and now it seems they took the lead. I also have a 52" sammy 750 which this replaced (the 52" now resides in family room) The sammy was/is a quality display also, with CFL back lighting. I consider the Sharp at least as good.

The stand is a Bello, but I can not find the exact model anymore. Might be discontinued. Since that center speaker weighs close to 100lbs, I needed something stout, and even then, I put in a re-enforcement in the middle to support the weight. I think it is similar to this:
http://www.bello.com/index.php?parti...80&categ_id=39

I also modified it by mounting a sheet of 3/4" plywood for the tv mount, and then mounted a conventional wall mount to that to support the 70" sharp. The TV mount that the stand came with did not have the spacing big enough to mount the 70". However, it speced being able to support the weight. Seems to work great, I have no worries about it.

EDIT: Actual pic of the HTPC. Love the silverstone case, has the perfect HT look. Also a pic of the maelstrom sub. We went with the same round over on all the cabinets for an integrated look. The subs are powered with sound re-enforcement amps that have fans, so they (and the emotiva XPA-5) live in a different room. The piece above the HTPC is an equalizer kit that I put together, designed expressly for sealed subs.
