You may have some codec or software config issues going on if you are getting that kind of load simply streaming video. If you are cpu/software decoding content that is able to be hardware decoded,...

Depends on what exactly you mean by 60fps. Refresh rate is just how often the screen is redrawing/updating/however you want to look at it without stating the obvious refreshing. Anything else going...

Might be your TV depending on how old it is. A lot of the earlier ones would not display PC output at full native res easily. Most of it was not being able to do 1080p over PC specific inputs like...

I've been running a G620 using the integrated graphics for years. Yes on almost all accounts you stated. Not sure what you mean by LAV filters for TV playback. In a normal setup, the built in MS...

I don't understand why you are so hell bent on 'future proofing' a pc build for something like this that is still essentially in its infancy. Like a couple others have pointed out, buy what works...

Another thing to factor in with a more performance oriented card, especially since madVR can push it, is REALLY pay attention to the cooling and the cost of replacing it something better. Video cards...

I don't think SSD reliability has ever been a huge concern, though not as ideal for live tv caching and all....rather just plain not cost effective for this application. Under normal use, without...

I'm sure this is EXACTLY why all that stuff was discontinued, as well as support/development of WMC. You can probably add to that any other major player developing similar software nevermind the...

Sounds odd. If they wont send someone out to fix it, pull the back cover and see what the part number is and try replacing it yourself. Seems like this is the same set as the 643's with a different...

Hardware...ordinarily for a normal HTPC focused more on playing stuff rather then ripping, anywhere between a Celeron and i3 is the most effective. Since you want to do some ripping, an i5 or even an...

I'm late to this party, but...cheaper gear doesn't mean the cheapest no name thing you can find. Maybe basic is a better word then cheaper. With the motherboard for example, you typically only need...

I recently picked up a 65" Sharp LE643u. Bright scenes look just fine on this set, but dark scenes are absolutely terrible....just a blocky bandy mess with no detail. It's kind of like trying to...

I don't particularly understand what you are after. The apps and all of a smart tv has no where near the functionality of an HTPC. I would not put them in the same boat at all. Most people who...
