Hi all Want some constructive advice on building a HTPC from scratch and any thoughts you may have on home build vs Uvem or similar. I will be using either MCE or xlobby or similar and want to drive: - multi-zone music - main panel (not yet purchased, prob LCD, maybe plasma) - source for my house-wide video uplink - DVD playback from hard-drive - freeview PVR (playback and recording) - cable (NTL) PVR (playback and recording) - web viewing, email pick-up and possibly playing the odd game I may try to achieve the multi-zone music through localised music servers reading of the same hard drive or through my AV receiver, so not too worried about that here. Silly question: can I drive 2 sound cards from the same system? No idea on what soundcard. M-Audio? Am considering the Claritas 390M (large) case as a build, but since the HTPC will be in an under-the-stairs cupboard, no real issue on fan noise etc. I will need around 2TB of hard drive space. Considering also the use of the 6600GT 1GB graphics card (do I need to go this big?). No idea on the cable PVR card or the motherboard. I'm guessing around 2GB for main memory. DAB radio card would be nice (can I record digital radio yet), plus need a bluetooth (or similarly wireless) keyboard and gyroscopic mouse. Thoughts on remote controls (preferably pretty-looking and wireless) would be good too. Would appreciate input / experience on the above. In addition, what problems will I hit rather by a self-build rather than the UVEM or similar route. This PC would be well over £3500 with Uvem, but significantly less through self-build. Sorry about the long post. Thanks in Advance!!
