Hi Nick,

Yep, I read this before already :) (I'm also a member of the SD forums). Now the only thing I'm still pondering is how much to pledge ($30, $60 or $259). I already have quite a number of...

Those are two of my gripes with WMC DVR. Also, despite having multiple tuners, it's never quite handled back to back recordings properly for me. For example, I recorded the Chicago Fire/Chicago...

I'm curious, where in the EULA does it actually say that Microsoft has to keep providing guide data? Most of the EULAs and TOS I've read are there for protection of the developer rather than the user.

It's not. I remember checking prices at Amazon and taking into account frequent sales on HDHR units, buying hardware separately and going for just the $60 perk saves you a hundred bucks or two.

In fairness to the C847 and C1007U/C1037U, they're based on Sandy Bridge and Ivy Bridge architecture. As far as I'm aware, they have better IPCPC compared to the Bay Trail. Mind, Bay Trail wins on...

That depends on how you define signal quality. App is available on the Google Play Store but afaik, it only works for HDHomeRun tuners.

Technically, the Pi already has RAM built in and storage cost would have been the same/similar either way. The RTC is also optional (I don't bother).

Mind, I hear you on the cost. My own Pi 2 PMS...

If you're super concerned, maybe just limit the time for scheduled tasks (ergo, index generation) to 2-3 hours. I believe by default, scheduled maintenance is from 2am-5am.

Case does have space for two 2.5" drives. You mount the drives behind the motherboard plate (both side panels are removable). Warning, it can get pretty hot. Used this case for a Zacate E-350 build...

I think you're being a bit paranoid but hey, it's your stuff.

No idea if the locations are the same on a NAS but you can use the help article from Plex linked in my earlier post.

Either configuration will work. 2x4GB will give you better graphics performance, though, not that it'll matter much for HTPC use.

Thing is both Celeron and Pentium are equally capable for HTPC tasks as an i3 barring support for 3D. Hence for me, it's Celeron/Pentium and in cases when those aren't fast enough (normally for...

I find the price difference between i3 and i5 (4400 or 4500) is generally just $50 or so. Personally, nowadays I either go for Core-based Celeron/Pentium or i5 quad-core. I just don't find...
