Beginner Will add as I go along..
24 October 2008 I had to start from the ground as I only had two laptops in the house. So here is what I got.
* Motherboard: ASUS M3N-H/HDMI * CPU: AMD Athlon 64x2 AM2 * RAM: 4G * Graphics card: NVidia GeForce 8300 Onboard. * Case: Silverstone GD01B-MXR with LCD and remote ( This is nice, I just hope I can use it) * TV Card: Hauppauge WinTv HVR3000 TV tuner,FM Radio ( This have freeview and a remote) * Digital Stellite Receiver: MySkyHDi ( I think it is a pacer box) * HDD: 80Gb for OS, 750Gb for data then I also got a 750Gb NAS with 250Gb usb * LMCE_CORE_u0710 _amd64 runs in UI2
Media Director Will be added as I go along. I first need to make sure that I can get the Core working and controlling my TV (Sony Bravia) and the sky box. I know there is no RS232 on the TV but on the sky box there is a USB and Network port but according to the documentation they are not active so I am going to try it. If it does not then I will have to all back on to the Infra red option.
