Getting rid of the old tower PC case is one of the most important steps when integrating an HTPC into your home entertainment center. The sleek, elegant looks of the Antec Veris Fusion Black Media Center Case provide the perfect touch to any home theater. Even my brother walked in, stared at my home theater and asked, "Where is this new computer case you have been talking about?" When we pointed it out to him, he just thought it was a sound system since the graphic equalizer was going to town while my music was playing.

Does the VFD software work in Ubuntu. I am planning on building a PVR this month and using Ubuntu and MythTV. If the software doesn't work, are there at least Linux options?
Intel Core 2 Duo E6600 @ 3.0GHz
Gigabyte GA-P35-DS3R
2x1gb G.Skill DDR2-800 4-4-3-5
eVGA 8800GT SC with Akimbo cooling Kit
WinXP Pro
Dell 2405fpw @1920x1200

All wrapped up in a Lian-Li PC-G70a

I've been looking for one of these but unfortunately they always cost more than I'm used to spending on a computer case. Errrrgggghh. :(

I use Windows Media Center that comes with Vista Ultimate to watch TV and it works fine for me. I have a KWorld ATSC 110 HD Tuner card. But I am using an antenna to get the signal
