I've been trying to figure out a new motherboard/processor combo to upgrade my media centre/PVR.
Really open to recommendation or a starting point on brand/chipset/graphics.
Currently use NextPVR and I have a dual Hauppauge DVB-T tuner.
Local storage for recordings, but any other videos are stored on the network.
My unit currently has a
Asus E35M1-M Motherboard with AMD Hudson M1 Processor. 4Gb ram. Works a treat for playback and recording Freeview, and playing any avi / mkv, etc I have, but now I'm thinking it would be great to upgrade it and have it cope with transcoding as well.
It's a fanless board which is great, but my case does have a PSU fan, so not totally silent - which doesn't bother me too much.
Any ideas appreciated :)
