So i finally convinced the wife we can ditch the mySky box & save some cash by using an old htpc I have & actually using my sub to netflix.
But. It doesn't have a digital tunercard, & I'll need a new wireless mouse & keyboard.
I can buy, but I'm wondering if that's still the right way to go..
Ideally want freeview on pvr, youtube, netflix, hulu+ plus others I've yet to discover, and would like something to manage some streaming music.
I used to torrent and horde a lot but beside a movie maybe every six months, not so much these days.
The old box is currently running an i3 3.1GHz cpu with 3gb of ram, a 60gb ssd & win7 in a silverstone case. I also have a harmony one remote. Last time around I was playing with xbmc which honestly was a bit of a pain.
I'm wondering, should I stick with the htpc, or should I go the dedicated box way?
Whatever I do it HAS to be wife friendly.
What would you do?
