Hi sandos, thankyou for the info. I forgot to apologize for butting in on strawberry's thread. I found that the info was quite informative and that is why I thought to add some extra comments. Hi to strawberry!
Looking for more info on compatible equipment for building a media center. I wll, as already said, be integrating the media center into my TV system. I have a NAD HiFi which consists of a cd player c541i, Dvd/cd/mp3 player T352, a tuner C422, and a Integrated amp C370. Not the latest equipment but I am pleased with it. The TV will be a LCD Phillips something with HD potential. My Media Center will be integrated into this system.
I am a bit curios to what TV cards, Graphic cards etc are supported by Linux?
The motherboard I have been looking at is a Asus P5B and a dual core 2.13 GHz processor. Apart from those Items I am a little unsure as to what I will need.
Not looking for equipment to run telephones, lighting etc just my HiFi and access to my network. The network cables are inplace waiting for a Media Center.
In Sweden we work with PAL if that helps with equipment.
Can someone advise me a little more on the hardware. I would appreciate comments about my choice of motherboard, processor etc.
