Does anyone know if one of those tiny type box type computer bases would be any good for freeview here in NZ?
I'm considering something to replace a bunch of things in my AV cabinet. I like the idea of a unit where the hardware definitely all works together and overall it is quiet.
I'm after freeview HD recording primarily, twin tuners using windows 7.
Satellite recording would be cool too, but I don't know of any usb based sat tuners and it would have to be this if the box didn't include tv tuners built in.
(I've given up on bluray audio output from a htpc, especially one that can internally decode the hd audio formats and output the raw lpcm info to the receiver.)
If all this doesn't work I guess I'll just opt for the magic tv box or similar, but I just like the idea of running the computer through the TV as well. I have a ps3 but find the bits in there generally not as good as a dedicated PC would be.
Ideas appreciated. Cheers.
