Hi im looking for a smaller Core/Hybrid with power usage 30-60 watt.
It's only for one tv maybe in the future one MD.

My setup right now:
core/hybrid:
pentium 4
3gb ram
Nvidia 9600 gt
Usb-serial connected to receiver.
Sound using spdif to receiver
HDMI to receiver
I'm using Mythtv connecting to a Hd-Homerun.
4TB NAS.

New Setup thoughts is:
Small pc like an eee-pc, zotac or mac mini or something like that.
Usb-serial connected to receiver.
HDMI to receiver with both sound and video
Mythtv connecting to a Hd-Homerun.
4TB NAS.
Maybe an blu ray drive.

Fore my setup is it not necessary fore 2 NIC's
 
Hope some of you have a good idea for such core/hybrid :)

okay, i have seen that but not found any directly core/hybrid example.
could i use an
ASUS EEEBOX 1501U 1.6 2GB/250GB Intel Atom N330 1,6 GHz 1 MB,
when it is only an atom CPU ?

That will work fine for a small lmce network regenning of orbiters will take a fair amount of time   5-12 minutes or so depending on resolution.
Other than that atom generally perform fine.

Okay thanks for the info:)
I was just not sure if the atom was strong enough or it should be an core 2 duo.

Thanks Tim
