I have my PC in the lounge, nice case, quiet fans and HD all hooked up to my LCD. But I need to move from the PC look to the media centre look and feel. My main HTPC needs are mp3, divx, skype video, msn chat, and if possible outlook email. I think for the rest I would be confined to my study!
At present I have a separate DVR which takes care of TV recording so i am not too bothered about the PVR side of the PC - although I need to plan for to the future.
I currently play divx/xvid movies and mp3s through WMP11.
Anyone any suggestions or recommendations?
thanks in advance, David
