a processor attached to a display does not make a home theater, I think people throw this term around too much

but if you consider the main purpose of the PC is for entertainment, then I think it's fine

 

anyway, I just bought a roku 2 XD

its a neat little gadget, wireless and smaller than an SSD, but you have to pay to access alot of the content on most channels

 

I am still collecting pieces to my dedicated HTPC, trying to reuse what I can and find good deals

I need to find another cheap windows7 license, dont want to use XP even if its free

I have a dedicated HTPC with quad tuners (2xDVB-S, 2xDVB-T), 1TB HDD for TV record/timeshift, movies/series/etc from NAS, 7MC + MediaBrowser + MCE Remote, HDMI to TV, analog stereo out to amp.

 

It's a machine that runs any time the TV is on (and even when the TV is off, for scheduled recordings)... with a £180 ($290 USD) case that I had to import from the Italian manufacturer.

 

(2nd machine in my sig)

Dedicated rig for HTPC. I actually watch more content through the HTPC than the cable box :)
