(if this is wrong area I apologise, please move it to the right place and remove this line ) As allways my brain is going on future projects and I've heard of, but know very little about, the media center version of windows. What I was thinking was using one of my old XP CPUs' int he project, Micro ATX Mobo if I could find it, reasonable soundcard and DVD player and the the idea I had is to make it the core of my hifi setup. I'd play DVD's and MP3 off it through my amp and into my TV ( not sure of the best way of doing the Video section ), might also take the Cable TV feed through it so I can record to HDD. Display wise I was thinkg of having a small ( touch screen if I can find one at a reasonable price ) primary monitor for controlling the PC then of course a feed into the TV somehow. I'd rather not use the TV as the primary monitor. Any advice and thoughts would be appreciated - thankyou.
