After viewing the hd3 card over the weekend i think its best to upgrade to Win Xp this week, from what a few other members have mentioned on various forums should i install the SP-1 pack (services Pack) or not just there has been a few issues with region killer not working properly.

My main point is since ive spent a lot of pennies on the Hd3 card and the Sdi modden denon i may as well upgrade my mother board to a Intel based one and a pentium based processor and ddr (bloody expensive), can any of you hd3 card owners tell me what boards and processors u are using or recommend and what offers best value for money.

cheers

Richard,

A lot depends on how much you intend to use dscaler, I use a PIII 1.13Ghz tualatin with a TUSL2-C mobo and it's plenty man enough for the job. Dscaler is quite processor intensive tho'.

I also have not put SP1 on it as it worked fine without and it's just going to be a dedicated scaler. I have disabled a lot of tyhe services to reduce the XP "overhead" tho'.

Steve

PS I've posted a reply on immersive re the other problem.

LOL, He's due at 11:00ish so too late for bacon butties, just in time for Pizza tho'

I made the mistake of playing with my HTPC this morning and ended up having to re-install H3D, a bit panicky for about 30mins, there wouldn't have been much image to show :eek:

Good luck with the install.

just out of interest who bnc modded your graphics card?
Wotcha Rich,
Me & my mate did it he did the soldering though i just "directed him";)
I think Mark Grant does the BNC mod & i think he also does the rf filter removal as well, give him a shout.
Give me first refusal on your new kit when your pi**ed off with it;)
Cheers

I've got this combination and it all seems to work fine, it alows you disable/uninstall messenger and outlook express, then go into msconfig and set everthing that it looks like you dont need to manual and if your fealling brave go into regedit and remove stuff like the messenger entries and print and fax stuff etc.:cool:

Maybe run Ghost first though incase you go too far.;)

Tweak page is very staightforward, I looked at all of the services if I was unsure I checked it as manual so it would ask me before starting. So far no probs.

Hi Rich,
First off do you have a XP compatible version of Norton Ghost?
Is your HCPC drive partitioned? or have a seperate HDD?
I need to know these to be able to give you instructions.
Cheers.
Tim.
