Might want to let on what motherboard you have. Though the Realtek solution should allow DD/DTS output, the fact that you've said you had a 20 year old AVR, I'm wondering how old your motherboard...

I still think that's a good idea, lol. It'd be pretty cool so long as the lag for transmission wasn't bad (which widi doesn't really accomplish at present time, unfortunately). You wouldn't need...

What laptop are you using, what type of output/cable are you using to connect it to the TV, and what kind of TV is it?

Umm isn't UVD an AMD thing? GTX 285 is Nvidia, with PureVideo HD. And isn't a GTX 285 from like 2008 or so? Am I missing something?

Ah good ol' BTX, the form-factor that made sense in terms of thermal design but was a never-was in the consumer market. I actually have no idea why it never became commonplace but I'm guessing...

I'd imagine it has to do with current production costs and production volumes for Seagate. Like you said it might cost them less in parts to have the drives wired up to begin with as USB 3.0 but it...

I stand corrected. For some reason I thought it was only on 7 Ultimate, guess it was pretty much standard on 7 as it was with Vista (other than basic/starter eds).

I was meaning more like a copy of the partition (or an "image" of the partition), saved to the server's storage space. That way it's just a total disk copy/transfer, apart from Windows possibly...
