    Hi,

    I recently bought a Shuttle case to build my HTPC with. I want to use the Showshifter software (www.showshifter.com) to give me PVR, DVD playback etc.

    I would like some recommendations on components especially;

    i) A DVD-ROM drive (must be able to play multi-region DVD's)
    ii) A video card. I need a video card that can capture the output from my NTL cable box and can output to my TV. I was thinking of a Radeon 8500DV for this. There is only room for 2 cards in the shuttle so I need this all in one card.

    Everything else is bought:

    Athlon XP 2100+ CPU
    512Mb PC2100 RAM
    SB Audigy 2 Soundcard

    Any tips gratefully received :)

    Thanks,
    David.
