I would like to know what in-ceiling speakers would match up with the A3's too. I considered the HSU model, but I'm afraid (probably justified) the horn tweeter is going to sound vastly different...

When using WD Green drives in a server, I strongly suggest using the WDIDLE3 program to set the head park time to 5 minutes or disabled. Otherwise load cycles are going to rack up really quickly.

I recommend the HDHR Extend, because you can watch live TV, even HD, on any tablet, phone, etc. In fact, my wife is in the other room watching the news on her tablet right now as I type this.

Dave, note he's speaking of the 3TB Seagate drives, which I am guessing is specifically the ST3000DM001. You may not have this specific drive. The problems with this drive are well known and...

Unless you are going to use the BD reader to dump your discs to .MKVs or something similar, I'd recommend just skipping it. Getting BD playback working acceptably on an HTPC isn't worth the time,...

I have the JP1 cable, 2 remotes, and the software. I am an IT guy and have been since the 80's. I can't figure out how to make it all work, so it probably isn't a great solution for non-tech people.

You can watch live TV on a Roku. The best method I have found so far is to install ServerWMC on your main WMC box, then use Plex and the HDHR channel for Plex on the Roku. It's not a GREAT solution -...

Plex just shares stuff that is already shared on your server box. So, yes, you can view with just Kodi. Of course it doesn't store it separately, if yours did, you did something wrong. I have a mix...

Agreed. I'd rather have my 65VT60 than ANY 4k TV, especially considering that at my distance I would not be able to see the difference - IF I even had any 4k content.

The lack of extender capability will be the reason I don't get an XBONE. Period. Why? It's the only reason I have any 360s. :)

The Celeron NUC with OpenELEC supports bitstreaming of all audio formats, I can attest from experience. Didn't test 3D, as we don't have a 3D projector and I don't watch 3D movies.
