After researching how best to replace my dead HTPC I've come to the conclusion no standalone unit can replace the functionality I had with the purpose built box using Mediaportal, a DVB-S card and a Harmony remote. Only having DVB-S and a wife who just wants to record Coronation Street 'like she always used to' is a drawback :)
So does anyone have a Gigabyte GA-H81M-S2H or similar sitting around doing nothing ? Must have HDMI which a number of the H81M's don't appear to have by the looks of it.
I'll also need something like a G3260 and 4GB of DDR3 to go with it but I don't need it all from the same person and would consider an i3 if the price was right.
