Will a HIPER HMC-2K53A-A3 work with LinuxMCE?
« on: May 02, 2008, 02:23:27 am »
On www.newegg.com, I found the  HIPER HMC-2K53A-A3 for $300.  I was interested in it because of its look, and the fact that it had all the media ports I need already built it.  I was wondering if the HDMI port is compatible with LinuxMCE.  If it isn't, is there someway to update a driver to make it compatible?

THANKS!!!

You're better off buying the H2 model, as it has an onboard NVIDIA chipset rather then the ATI one which is on the A3. The reason for this is that currently, there is no decent support for ATI in linux.
One more thing, the H2 has a DVI out put, taking into consideration that currently, there's no support for audio via HDMI, you are not compromising anything as the video signal delivered thru DVI is identical to the one delivered thru HDMI.

Hope this helps.
