Users / Where to buy Gigabyte TA3 or good low power consuming MD
« on: November 30, 2007, 09:29:07 pm »
I the Gigabyte TA3 on the wiki as a Media Director ( was wondering if anyone is still using it and if so where they bought it at as I can't seem to find one?

I am trying to build a decent system with 1 core and 1 MD for well under $1000 that works well.  If I can get the Media Director machines down cheap enough that we can start putting them in different rooms at the house.

Users / Is MSI Media Live box ok for Core?
« on: November 21, 2007, 09:02:57 pm »
I would like to know if anyone has used a MSI Media Live box and has got everything work ok?  I checked the hardware wiki and didn't see anything there yet. 
 I am looking for a fairly cheaper box than the Fiire Engine box that I can also use as a Director machine for now!  I think paying $800 is a bit high.


If you have a working setup for linuxmce can you please please update it in the WIKI. like or in the motherboard area.  It would really be beneficial to all of us to see more motherboards and also combo setups (like shuttle) that are truly working.  This way when a new person comes on board (like me) they can just go there and see a quick setup, buy it online and know how it needs to be setup to get it going.  Thanks!

Users / How to get the image (jacket) for a dvd
« on: September 10, 2007, 12:34:43 am »
Ok I have done a little looking around and am new to forum so please forgive me if this has already been answered.  I would like to know how in the video (demo video) the images from the dvd are done.  I have a bunch of DVD images in .iso format already that were done as backups and would like a way to have the jacket information displayed like in the demo video.  Can someone please enlighten me as to how this done and with what?


I noticed today that there are only 4 boards in the wiki.  Please PLEASE if anyone
has a known working setup and the board is not listed could we please get it listed with
known problems and such.   I am looking at using the Abit AN-M2HD  and want
to know if there are any know compatibility issues?  Thanks!

Developers / VIA EPIA EX15000G Mainboard anyone tried?
« on: August 28, 2007, 05:09:06 am »
This might be the wrong place to post this so please forgive me as it is my first post.  I am looking at getting the above board and wanted to see if anyone has tried it with linuxmce?  I want to make sure that it works before I purchase.  I have some sneaky suspection it might be what is in the FIIRE system.  I am trying to build a good system for around $500 bucks or less.  I already have some Hard Drives. 

For motherboard specs see:
or system

Installation issues / Fiire Station specs anyone looked inside
« on: August 12, 2007, 05:32:43 am »
I understand that the Fiire Station is a custom box, but I would like to know if anyone has opened one up and looked at the guts.  I am especially interested in the motherboard, and cards.  Anyone have one that they would be willing to open up and post?
