I'm thinking of building a HTPC to feed video into my high def (1280x720) DLP screen, via DVI, but I want to make sure it will be able to do everything I want it to do first. So, will a HTPC be able to do the following: 1. Take a S-Video/audio feed from my Sky box and rescale the image to HD 2. Act as a PVR for the above 3. Take a component video/digital audio feed from my xbox and rescale the image to HD while recording something from Sky 4. Playback mpg/divx/mov/mp3 etc and rescale the image to HD while recording something from Sky 5. Playback DVD from the DVD drive and rescale the image to HD while recording something from Sky 6. Playback .ts files while recording something from Sky All of the audio from the above would be output from the PC via an optical digital connection to my amp. Will this all be possible from a single HTPC box? I'm thinking of using a Hauppage PVR card for the sky input and a sweetspot card for the xbox input. The processor will be an Athlon 64 with 2-4 GB ram. I'll probably be using a Silverstone LC10M as the case. Which HTPC software would be the best, MCE2005, Meedio, Showshifter etc? Oh, and I want it as quiet as possible. Am I expecting too much from a single box? Any advice and comments are more then welcome. Thanks.
