HTPC media Centre
HTPC – was working flawlessly with freeview sattilite. Just got a new media centre so this one has to go. Should just me a matter of plugging in, rescanning channels and you are all go. I found it great because not only can you pause live tv or record it, but you can copy all of your DVDs, photos and use watch TV/sports over the internet. You can easily add a remote, we are reusing the one we had with our new media centre.

The only issue I can think of is that sometimes I have had issues with the DVD drive cover (on the Silverstone case) opening properly, just need to align the DVD properly.
I was using a DVI to HDMI cable to connect to a LCD and outputting from the sound card to a 5.1 home theatre system.
Linksys PAP2T Internet Phone Adapter with XNet VFX, 1x 10Mbps Port, was using with XNET VFX over Telstra cable in Wellington, but now moved to Hawkes Bay have bought an all in one router. Great product worked flawlessly
LCD wall mounting bracket plate – flat type mounting bracket, was used on a 32” LCD, fits a standard VESA 100x100 (check), comes with mounting bolts and a packet of screws that should fit most TVs. One plate is screwed onto wall, the other part on the TV, which then slots into wall part. Very strong and secure.
