Re: Need HTPC monitor and tv tuner recommendations

Hm, sounds like the HVR series might be the way to go. Now to find a good screen for it to work with. Would I be better off with an lcd hdtv, or a computer monitor?

I've got a sata Samsung burner, and it's whisper quiet for me. Then again, my case sounds like a napalm fueled explosion, but... :mrgreen:

Re: Need HTPC monitor and tv tuner recommendations

We're currently just getting regular cable, but we will upgrade to something else eventually. I don't think we have a box either, as the cable goes from the jack on the wall to the tv. So unless it's in the wall, no box. Since we don't have a box, does that mean there won't be any problems with the ...

Not sure if it's working right...

:-k Just tried to get SMP going on my PC, but it won't! I've got .net 2.0, got my account with a password, and ran the install.bat. (As long as you see the two lines of code, it's good, right?) But I just get this \/ ---------------------- [05:17:00] - Ask before connecting: No (because a service) [...

Re: Need HTPC monitor and tv tuner recommendations

Well, I can't fit THAT big of a tv in, but it would be awesome! I've got enough room for about a 26-27", maximum. Sorry, I should have mentioned that sooner... 8-[ That tv tuner looks great, but I only have pci slots. It's a lower budget 940 mobo, and I don't think I'm gonna upgrade to one with pci-...

Re: Corsair TX750W

Well, noise isn't an issue, as I already have two loud 120 fans (they push a lot of air) and I'll be adding three more with water cooling. And I sleep with it on, too. Nah, noise doesn't bother me. :mrgreen: And what will I power with it? Well, maybe dual Barcelona's, if Asus ever provides a bios th...

Corsair TX750W

Based on the recent reviews on Jonny Guru's site and at HardOCP, I'm thinking about getting this psu for my main rig, and putting the 620 into my file server/htpc. Thoughts?

Need HTPC monitor and tv tuner recommendations

As my HTPC gets nearer to completion (I'm using the dual Opteron system I mentioned in the Folding secion), I need to think about what monitor to get to replace our old crt tv ( :vom: ) and what tv tuner card to get to do you know what with it. What's the best size for sitting 6 or 7 feet away, do I...

Re: Barcelona review?

That's a perfectly reasonable policy, and I can agree with it! :mrgreen:

Thanks for the rapid response!

(And I hope Phenom can catch up to, at least, the Core 2's!)

Re: DFI am2 slowdown issues

I don't think anything's being limited, but it's possible, I suppose. I've gotta run some tests on the hard drive, like you said, but I don't think it's that, either. The reason being, everytime it happened it always went away with a cmos reset. Which really makes me think it was some option I chang...

Re: new server I'm building, enough power for SMP?

Yeah, it'll be good to add more points once I get some of these things going over here (for a slight taste of what's to come from me, I've got more server boards on the way... :mrgreen: ) Anyway, I guess no one over at the official forums cares enough about it to respond again, so I'll just have to ...

Just thought of that when I read the title. :mrgreen: Btw, I'll be watching this thread myself, since the new file server I'm building will also be an HTPC, so it'll ge...

Re: new server I'm building, enough power for SMP?

Thanks, that's kinda what I was thinking. I'll keep my eye on the thread you started over at the official forums, too.

The only sure way to know is to install windows and find out, but I can't do that right now, so... :roll:
