I'm looking for the following for my HCPC 1) audio input (analog from sky digibox) 2) audio output (digital to external DPL/DD decoder) 3) video input (RGB from sky digibox) 4) video output (DVI, or HDMI to plasma panel) Not much else. Just the cleanest possible connections for the above, with as little noise as possible. I think the sound elements could be sorted external to the PC, with a USB/Firewire interface. Best candidate I've seen for this is the M-Audio Firewire 410, although I'm not sure if I can route the sound through. Couple of other options - audiophile usb, and transit. http://www.m-audio.com/products/m-audio/fw410.php http://www.midiman.net/products/m-audio/audiophileusb.php http://www.m-audio.com/products/m-audio/transit/ The Sweetspot / PDI Delux looks like it'll do a good job of digitising a RGB signal from the digibox. I've got a RadeonVE graphics card that has a DVI out connection, but I've not had a chance to test it yet. Strikes me that someone should be thinking about creating a dream HTPC video card. Would be along these lines - AGP based video card - RGB, SVideo/Composite inputs - VGA, DVI/HDMP output - SPDIF output (optional - could use USB device) - Analog audio input (optional - could use USB device) It would also need to be NOT fan-cooled. So - has anyone built one of these yet? Andy.
