    OK - in a bit of a quandry.

    I have a main HTPC running all of my media content downstairs. I want to have similar functionality upstairs to drive my 5.1 surround sound system and LCD TV.

    I want to drive the TV using DVI (on my Hitachi 28LD5200) and digital to my surround amp. I also want to run xlobby rather than MCE (I think it's far superior). Is there an extender that will let me run put a small footprint of xlobby on it, or do I need to go for a barebones system? I know I can also run xlobby via a web service so could just get away with a browser.

    Cheers!

    Martin
