Unless Comcast does things very differently than my carrier (TWC), I'd be very surprised if there wasn't a single cable coming into your home that then goes through a splitter to feed the locations...

Okay, so the place where your cable modem is hooked up is not actually the point of entry. Do you know where the main cable comes into your house? If you have a basement it's likely there. It...

I would install a POE filter since the splitter in front of the cable modem provides a path out of your house for the network traffic that runs over your coax cables. Also, make sure the splitter is...

The Showtime streaming service will be available as an add-on to Hulu Plus for an additional $8.99/mo. Pretty sweet deal IMO.

I thought the latest versions of the ECB3500T01 had GigE ports? At least it's listed that way on Amazon:

Yep, my original post could have been a lot clearer.

Anyway, I just noticed that AMC has gone live in the Sling app, so that's good news. I checked on the AMC site and Sling subscribers can't...

What exactly is it that you're confused about? I'm talking about being able to watch back episodes on the AMC website. They (AMC) allow subscribers of many TV service providers to do that when they...

"TV service provider" would have been a better term. Since Sling is how I'll be able to watch AMC (when it goes live), they would be considered my service provider. In order to watch all but a few...

I've searched around and can't find even an estimate. Another question is whether Sling TV users will be able to watch back episodes online (you have to link to your TV provider to get full access).

You could save a little by going with the H97 instead of the Z97 motherboard. The main difference between them (AFAIK) is the ability to overclock with the Z97, and the i5-4590S (or i5-4590) can't...

It seems like streaming from the HTPC to a device in the TV room would be easier (and a couple of ways to do that are mentioned above). Is there some reason that won't work?

Thanks. I noticed that the device supports MOCA, which would be useful, as I use MOCA for my home network. Hopefully they don't disable it in the device somehow.

Another question. I currently...

Thanks again, ES_Revenge. At this point I think I'll just back off for a bit and wait to see if Newegg gets any more stock on the GD09. If not, I can pay a little more and get the GD05, which has...

I was actually hoping to get by with the stock cooler. I do want it reasonably quiet though, and if a 3rd party cooler is needed, so be it.

I agree I definitely don't need the full size ATX board, but if I decide to go with the GD09 I thought I may as well go with the ATX since it will fit. I've also thought of going with a mini ITX...
