I was wondering how many of you use a laptop as a dockable HTPC. It would be very simple to implement with a port replicator and a nice desktop replacement. I have an inspiron 8200 I am using for this. I am having a hard time getting powerstrip to keep the scan rate the same when I change the refresh rate. What am I missing? I am outputting to a 56" Panny HDTV. The s-video obviously does not impress me. This maybe a newbie question, but I am a week into tinkering with it and thought I would ask what systems you guys have and what worked for you.
