I have my HTPC
Athlon 1800+
1 Gig of pc2700 ram
nforce1 MB
80gig ide hd for the OS
200gig ide drive for recording tv
USB version 2 IDE card
2x Hauppage pvr usb2 tuners
32x liteon dvd r/w
(no video card)
OS: Vista Pro dedicated to MCE

I also have another box on my network
Athlon 1800+
1 Gig of pc2700 ram
nforce1 MB
2x 400gig drive
1x 200gig drive
dlink gigbyte network adapter pci
USB version 2 IDE card
(no video card)
OS: Window Home Server

Then I use my xbox 360 as a windows media extender for playing TV, and to stream music and video from my WHS box. Both PC boxes are generic and I have them hidden, and I'm sure you've all seen a xbox 360.

I notice when playing mp2 recorded video with the 360 extender, why isn't there any sound? only with avi's.

It depends on the audio codec you used

I'm going to start my HTPC/Media Server project starting in January. I have some spare parts that I'll be building upon:

Intel E4300 @ 3.0GHz
Gigabyte GA-DS3L Mobo
2GB PC6400 DDR2 RAM
8600GT Twin Turbo
20GB Hard Drive (for starters)

All I need is a decent case, a new hard drive, a power supply and a HDTV capture card and I'll be set. Also, I'll have to purchase a copy of Vista or XP. I'd like to get a HD-DVD/Blu-Ray drive but they aren't real affordable right now.

Newegg had a CoolerMaster 600-watt PSU on sale today: FREE w/MIR. It sold out fast and I wasn't going to order anything while on campus.

Keep an eye out, my HTPC is coming soon.

This is what I use for my home HTPC. Most importantly it does sat FTA, and if you look around you can have it scan for DN and other sat netowrks.

I am enjoying it. It needs a few minor upgrades like CPu and ram but overall it works great.
