Hi guys, I have been thinking about buying a new PC for quite a while, but after picking up on the concept of HCPC's have decided that this could be a good direction to go. I am planning on purchasing a new home cinema set-up once I move in to my new house, and have already demoed the Themescene H56 along with several amps and speaker packages, and the HCPC is the final piece of the puzzle. However , I am struggling to cut through all the bit and pieces of information available on the web to work out exactly what I need. Firstly, what I would like from an HCPC: 1. Quality DVD playback (obviously!). I would like to take advantage of the DVI socket on my projector for the very best picture. 2. Video/Photo editing and playback from my Sony Digicam. 3. TIVO style TV recording/pausing from my ntl digital box. 4. Potentially PC gaming, although the DC, PS2, Gamecube and Xbox should really suffice . Now, What I would really like to know is what components I need to enable this, beyond a base PC specification. And also whether all the above is possible from one box. Also, an indication of a minimum/preferred PC spec would be handy. If anyone can advise me I would be most appreciative. Cheers guys. Steve P.S. If this information is available in a previous thread I apologise - could someone link me up. I just feel as though I have searched the entire Internet for a decent HCPC "beginners guide".
