i know you are all prob saying "Not another one" but if someone could spare some time ill try and give back as much as ive got out. Before i go on my 2k Spending frenzy im listing below are my modules and accessories which i am going to buy unless someone can tell me why not to eg compatibility ect...
So here we go

So far my core is set up.
Specs are as followed
Asus -p5b premium MB vista edition. love this board so far no probs at all...
4gb of ram however only registers as 3.2gb
2.4 Ghz Duocore Intel processor.
TV@nywhere Hybrid DVB card PCI
dvd rom for now but have contacted sony aus to see if i can grab my hands on a jukebox.
5 Hard drives 3 x 200
                    - 2 x 250

And a Geforce7200 Nvidia 512mb Video card

This station will be soon running from the living room running through CAT5 cableing which has 5 ports throughout the House.

Now this is where my spending frenzy comes in.
my media directors i am wishing to buy for now i am only buying two MD's  for the moment and prob buying two more for bedrooms and one near the spa. ;) dont worry it will be protected and attached to a projector which im about to show u. My shopping list is as followed....

Starting with the x10 devices.
X10 ActiveHome Pro USB PC Interface w/ Software (CM15A)  ---
Is this the module which will be able to connect to my core and spread throughout my house?
or would something smaller less technical like this be better

3 x screwable light thingys
is there any of the other type the clip and twist kinda ones? havnt seen many around.

3 x sensors

Media driectors
i keep changing my mind on the case looks so for now i will be purchasing
This nice little slim case

cant find anything with the RCA ports on them from epia for a good price at the moment so for now am just gonna use a HD converter plugs for the dvi outputs

can i buy USB tv tuners???   
if so here are some i have found which i could just put in the back of a MD?

and my projectors i am hopefully gonna buy two if the first one is good qual if not ill hold off for awhile and get a fair decent one in the living room.

and my skype connector hopefully this will work soon with it all.

hope i havnt missed out on anything except for the obivious including ram for md's if i have please call me blond :P   anyways hope in a way this has helped someone aswell as myself...

Thanks for reading Dane

Users / LinuxMCE fixed my HDD! Woot!
« on: November 01, 2007, 12:10:32 pm »
Just wanted to let some people know that LinuxMCE had fixed my Hard drive.    Dont know how but through months of trying to re-format it it has finally worked for me and can get it working again.   

I found LMCE to be very good with playing my audio sound and Dvds usually i get crackling sounds which make watching some videos unbearable. However LMCE as good in the manner.

I found that some of the texts to be to big for the boxes. making The gui abit frustrating  however once to be put on a projection screen will hardly notice it.

The inbuilt router over powered my original router causing no internet accessibility not allowing me to test my browsing functionality.

I was suprised to see my friends wireless laptop picked up the through my router allowing him to access the control panel through his wireless laptop through the router into my computer which tempary gave him no internet access either.   

The setup process is pretty downpat however i dont know if its my wireless mouse but the constant clicking for the next button to work the one time is to far fetched.

i have ordered some x10 devices and a bluetooth dongle, also i have ordered my grandmother a new PC which i plan on testing out a few features first.  Ill be back with some pics later.

I havnt tried all the functionality so i wont be to fast to have my final judgement on this product however it still does look pretty promising compared to Windows MCE.   

what i would like to see in  future releases?
- Codecs which can support .RM real media easy codec packages... :)

Hopefully i havnt been to bashful and hope to make this project better by offering my criticism.

check to see if your motherboard has the audio connections are mounted correctly.   i had found that my usb dvd rom on my windows machine had that problem and once the wire were properly attached this solved it
hope this works for you to

i believe it can be run through out the whole house if its connected to the core. however only one disc may be used at one given time.
Please someone correct me if i am wrong since i  am a newb to this kinda stuff. i have a collection of over 300 movies and so many more gbs of episodes i think this device is tops for the job at hand...
