Hi, hopefully someone can answer this one.
I've just grabbed a dhdvd/bluray combo sata drive for my htpc from ebay aus and it's all instaled and appears to work well. Problem is I'm still using a crappy old 6200 (fanless, low profile) which appears to be underpowered (certainly according to the cyberlink hd advisor anyway).
So I'm assuming the best option for something low profile and fanless at this point in time is one of the 8500GT cards I've seen people mention. Tricky part is I'm stil running the signal into the svideo input on my old tellie (still awaiting funds clearance for the new panel!) so I need a card with:
- low profile
- capable of decoding h264 signals
- silent please!
- svideo out
Unless of course there's a cheap way to convert dvi into svideo, but since thats a d-a conversion i don't hold out much luck for that.
