Ok so this HTPC lark looks pretty cool but I am a bit confused. What I am about to ask must be a FAQ but I could not find a suitable response/sticky or FAQ so here goes. I have Sky+, Denon DVD (2800ish), Denon amp/receiver(3800ish I think), KEF egg speakers, (will soon have) DLP RPTV and PRONTO. Sky+ This gives me the PVR functionality. Does a HTPC give me anything extra from the PVR perspective? I have read several people have hooked sky+ up to the HTPC; why? DVD I am going to have to replace my DVD to get a DVI output. This is where the HTPC, I believe, gives me some value. So where does a HTPC via DVI rank against stand alone DVD players? Assume a £1000 HTPC. AMP I assume I would keep the AMP and the HTPC should have an output to connect to the amp. Is this correct? Or will the HTPC hook up directly to the speakers? OS Does HTPC = MCE. If you take the PVR functioanlity out of the equation is MCE just providing a UI via infa red? PRONTO Does the MCE remote have an analog stick or anything else that will make my beloved remote sad? Sorry for the large number of questions and no doubt asking what every noob does when they first see the letters HTPC. Help will be appreciated!
