Don't know if anyone has already seen this website but they have very cheap mini pc's.

I think the "MX-SA Socket System for Dual Quad Core AMD, NVidia, 1080i, 1080P, HDCP, HDMI, H.264 BluRay, MPEG2 $190 qty 1" would make a perfect MD.  Just have to add CPU and Ram.

Here are the specs:

MX-SA Socket System: AMD AM2+ Dual Core CPU, NVidia GeForce,
    NF-8200GFX, 1080i, 1080P, H.264, AVC video acceleration
    Dual Display, HDCP, HDMI, BluRay, MPEG2, VC1, ,Direct X 10,
    HT 2Ghz, DDR2 800 Ram, 4 SATA2, RAID, DVI, 2Gb Lan,
    8Ch Audio, 10 USB (some hdr), VGA, PCI slot, CE, FCC, RoHS

Oh the price is in US dollars too.
Depends on your currency conversion rate whether this suit. :-\

Hi all,

Just wondering if anyone has tried this board in a media director. Looks good, has gigabit, integrated geforce 8500 with DVI out, 6 channel sound etc.

I am looking at getting one, because I can get a cpu for this very cheap.

Thoughts  :-\

I run Gigabit network.

You can find equipment that is fairly well priced now.
I am looking in the future of HD and Blueray streams on my setup, which will require higher bandwidth.

is on the way...

Is a company planning on making an Australian version of Zwave?
This would be very good as I really did not know which way to go with the automation side of things. :o

Bugger all! Insteon and Z-Wave are the two most supported other than X10, but neither have Australian versions yet (ZWave may do in the future, seems unlikely that Insteon will as it doesn't support EU yet either). EIB is another, but that is primarily EU and expensive, never seen it here.

Dan recently added support for PLCBus, which is a Chinese/HK product but explicitly supports the AU/NZ market as well as N.A. and EU. Relatively cheap but more expensive than X10 still, though faster and bi-directional. I believe someone is already using it in AU but can't remember who. You can order direct from their HK web site.

Yes, you can get the GSD to send and receive basic text strings using Ruby code in the web admin, to a serial port. Or you can write your own DCE device from  the ground up and do anything you like. For GSD, you just create a device template, plug in the Ruby codes for the things you want it to send and associate each command group with a DCE command, then the GSD device will handle the translation of DCE commands coming in, to the Ruby code it needs to execute to send a particular text string out the serial port. Then the placement of the device in the Devices Tree and the pipes you set up allow LMCE to determine which DCE commands to send to that device, and when to send them.

Hi I suggest if people want to have insteon in Australia then you should visit this page and submit your interest.  Dont know if it will work but it may get some people to look more seriously into it if a lot of people are showing interest.

It cant hurt to try  :)

DTV meaning Free to Air DVB-T television presumably, has an EPG transmitted with it. The issue you will need to deal with is, you need to make a decision as whether to use VDR or MythTV. For DVB-T (Australian free to air) VDR is definitely the better choice and provides EPG automatically with no setup. However, VDR will not let you capture your Austar analogue service, you will need MythTV for that, and although Myth will also to DVB-T it doesn't currently support the EPG. If you go that way then you will have to do some considerable setup and scrape the EPGs for these services from an XML provider like oztivo.

I have MythTV running on my Hybrid, DVB-T with EPG working.  I had to set it manually but it works.  Australian Digital TV sends the EPG with the signal now.  Some of the channels ie the multiples of the same channels dont have data, but if you look at another version of the same channel it will have it.

I am only using one Tuner at the moment.  A Lifeview DVB-T Hybrid LR306N which was not recognised in the initial install but sets up in Myth.

Compatible Products & Services / Fiire Remotes -where to buy?
« on: October 20, 2008, 02:30:42 am »
Hi all,

I am wondering where I can buy a Fiire remote from or even whether it is worth buying now as I have seen a lot of bad comments about the customer support from Fiire.

Also the company Polywell which used to sell them, now no longer does.
