Guys, I'm going to be building a LMCE system for my parents. That means that I need hardware that is just going to work. While I've built a system that works well, it still occasionally requires tweaking, so I'm asking for some definite hardware that I could use that you guys have personally verified to work. They only need DVD and TV playback, so don't worry about home automation. Also, I will be scouring the the wiki as well, but just wanted to hear some real user suggestions, not that "this piece of equipment mostly worked with some tweaking". What are some truly plug and play hardware that you guys know of? thanks
So, I think the main things I need suggestions for are motherboard, videocards, soundcards, and TV capture. Any help would be appreciated and don't bother pointing me towards the wiki: I'm already researching there.
P.S. If you guys have any links to stores selling these parts, all the better!
