Dear Guys,

I have an MSI K9N Neo V3 with an AMD 64 X2 5000+ processor and I just recently configured this PC as a remote media director.  I believe it is a standard ATX motherboard.  It works very well booting from the core/hybrid through the network using PXE.  The only problem I am still working on is in getting to see the TV stream from the PVR-150 capture card installed in the core.  I can watch videos stored in the core without any problem.

Good luck, Jaime

You could do me and a lot of others a really big favor by adding your own hardware to the wiki in this case the: MSI K9N-Neo-V3, pretty please with sugar on top?
