Silverstone LaCasa 19 Case
MSI Media Live (7329) Motherboard
Fiire Chief Remote Control


A PC to be used as a Media Director has specific requirements: a stylish case, low power requirements/heat emission, quiet operation (quiet fans or fanless heat sink), good graphic and sound output cards, and interfaces for input devices/remote controls (USB, wireless, Bluetooth, or USB-UIRT).

It does not need extensive processing power or RAM.

It does not need a large hard drive, since storage can be provided over the network from the Core or a NAS (network attached storage) device. It does need a DVD (optical) drive, since you will play DVDs through it.


Confirmed working with 0704.


  • Small HiFi form factor
  • Brushed aluminum front
  • Clear design
  • Plenty of outputs (component, HDMI, ..)
  • low power usage
  • UI2 capable (reported up to 720p)
