Users / Intel D945GCLF2

What do you think of this mini-ITX motherboard: Intel D945GCLF2?

It seems like a great option for a SD MD...

Users / Media Director SD
« on: November 18, 2008, 01:54:23 am »
Good day,

What would be the cheapest media director to read various video formats (mpeg2, mpeg4, etc.) with simple TV-OUT (7 pin s-video?) capabilities and probably UI2 capabilities for an SD television? I can also build a box myself if it comes cheaper...

Thank you very much,
Philippe

Users / Yet Another "building"...

I'm building myself a new LinuxMCE system and I just wanted to be sure that all of my computer parts choices would be compatible with it. I also want to be sure that I'll be able to run UI2 with alpha blending or masking smoothly... Furthermore, I want to be able to watch live TV.

I'll buy this kit three times (but the HDD) and one will serve as a hybrid. Does anybody have a similar configuration? I heard that this motherboard has BIOS problems, did anyone have any problems installing a CPU similar to mine on it?

Thanks a lot,

Users / VIA EPIA EX

Do you think that a system based on a VIA EPIA EX with a 1.5ghz processor and a hardware based encoding tv card (pvr-150 for example) would be capable of simultaneous recording, playback and/or streaming plus UI2 (with masking I guess)?

Thanks

Compatible Products & Services / USB tv tuner

I made a quick search on the forum and the wiki and it seems like there is no info about generic usb tv tuners example: http://cgi.ebay.ca/USB-2-0-TV-Tuner-Video-MPEG-Capture-Box-with-Remote_W0QQitemZ230208564050QQihZ013QQcategoryZ3761QQssPageNameZWDVWQQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem.

Does someone knows if it works? It'd be nice to create a wiki page...

Thanks,
