I just got done putting the finishing touches on my home theater PC. And I thought I would share it will you all.


I first started of with an old Denon 2800MKII DVD player for the case then I added the following items to it.

CPU

Intel Dual Core E5200

Memory

2GB

Motherboard

ASUS P5E-VM with HDMI out

DVD/ Blu-Ray Drive

LG GGC-H20L

Hard Drives

OS - 160GB

Stoage - 2- 500GB in Raid for 1TB (For DVR)

Tuner Card

Hauppauge HVR-2250 Dual tuner


Now this is were I think it just all fits great together is how it looks. The Play stop and next track buttons all work a long with the eject too. The next step I got to do is add the the Front LCD display that will be in the same place has the old one and will show the time and the shows that are being REC.


Thanks for viewing

I used the old mounts form the old drive up frount for the height. and then I used an old desktop case drive case to hold it up from the back so it will be off the CPU fan.

Wow! Great DIY Project!


Let me ask, how did you get the control buttons to interface with your PC?


Also, just a tip: you can use sugar cubes to safely scratch off the yellow paint on the front without scratching the black below. I'd first try it on an inconspicuous place just to make sure it wont harm the black paint beneath.
