I've recently joined the HTPC wagon a few months back, and like others have been pulling my hair out with Freeview|HD and hardware acceleration...surprise - surprise! ...not to mention my stint with MythTV = very late nights!
Anyways, the end is near... just flicked off my ASUS ATI HD2400 PRO for $40 (doh!) ...and am looking at the NVidia 9400GT or 9600GT...silent models
My system is:
AMD Athlon64 X2 5000+
Asus M2N-VM Mobo
Marantz SR6003 receiver
Wharfedale Diamond-9, 5.1 system
Samsung LA46N81B 46" 1080p LCD
Background (geek stuff):
used to be a software developer... UNIX, C#, VB, SQL....blah blah
now workin in AV as AMX (control systems) programmer and consultant.... Programming toys = way more fun! 8)
