What i was after wasn't a install guide or any help to fix my problems (not yet anyway ) but a list of hardware that would make up a very good stable powerful mce box.
If a business was selling pre-loaded mce boxes what would their budget, mid-range and pro setups be.
I know i can search the internet for compatible hardware but i am curious to know what combinations of hardware people find work well together. I have seen plenty of other people ask the same kind of thing and are just redirected off to other sites, like mythtv etc.
eg for my high end spec i am thinking of
mobo: Asus P5B Deluxe
cpu: Core 2 Duo E6400
ram: 2gb of generic branded or whatevers cheap
hd: 500gb or more if i can afford it
graphics: XFX GeForce Fx5200 (Apparently fanless)
capture: 2x Hauppauge WinTV HVR 1100
no idea what case at the moment
no idea what tv would be a good option. The one i have at the moment is so old i don't think it even has a scart socket.
