Users / ASUS M2NPV-VM Discontinued
« on: October 05, 2007, 08:50:11 am »

I knew that M2NPV-VM wasn't exactly a new board, but I was having a chat with a guy at my local shop (he sells lots of stuff and generally knows what he's talking about) and he mentioned that M2NPV-VM was discontinued. Basically it will be available while supplies last. I suppose the fact that Newegg is offering a special bundle deal on it is also telling (

So I am seriously considering Abit AN-M2HD ( I understand there still may be some issues with it (see, but at least it's a newer chipset and the support for it will probably only get better over time.

Does anyone have a better idea for a mATX Core/Hybrid?


Users / DVB-T vs analog receiver: need clarification please
« on: August 13, 2007, 08:23:13 am »

I am based in Australia where I am currently receiving free-to-air digital TV via a set-top converter connected to my wide screen Sony CRT TV. I am thinking about setting up a LinuxMCE box and would like to get clarification on the following:

1. If I decide to go with something like Hauppauge WinTV-PVR-150 which, based on what I have read so far, is pretty much guaranteed to work, will I be able to "feed" it analog signals out of my DVB-T set top converter? What I am trying to avoid is having to use a separate remote for the converter and LinuxMCE. Does anyone have any experience with this?

2. I suppose replacing my set top converter with a DVB-T receiver as part of the LinuxMCE setup would be better, however I haven't seen any reports of LinuxMCE compatible configurations. What's the recommended hardware for this kind of setup (HD DVB-T receiver with PVR functionality)? My current TV only supports SD but I would like to make my system HD 1080i capable so that everything is ready to go once I upgrade the TV.

Thanks for your input!
