Oh, is that all... :rolleyes:


Hehe. Sorry. The fact is, there is just a huge variety of software and hardware out there, and its impossible to answer without more information about what you are looking for in a HTPC.


The FAQ is out of date, but a good start.


Basically though, you need to write down exactly what you want to do with the HTPC first. Do you plan to play computer games? DVD playback only? Use it as a PVR? Record OTA High Definition? What is your buget? --Karl

I dont have a budget because I do not intend to build one, only curious.


I hooked my projector up to my PC for the 1st time last night so I thought I would ask the question.


Currently I have a Intel 1ghz pIII, running win 2k professional, with 256mb of ram. I have 80gb of storage on the network connected at 100mb/full duplex.


For video I am using an ATI All In Wonder 128 Ultra Pro AGP and a generic DVD drive and Cyberlink DVD player.
