Want to build system
« on: April 04, 2010, 07:17:02 am »
Hi All, the only thing stopping me from going out and buying a system is how difficult it is to find compatible hardware that ticks all the boxes.

My priority with me LMCE box is that it plays 1080p video flawlessly, and has excellent audio quality. It will be the BD-Rom player in my setup, not just stream media.

- Are current Nvidia cards doing HDMI video and Audio over HDMI? Or is it just video? Any recommendations here?

- If no to above, then is onboard sound via SPDIF working ok for everyone or is dedicated soundcard needed?

Things I have decided on -

Im going to get one of those HD Homeruns for the TV side of things...
Intel E7500 CPU
ANtec case
Zalman PSU
Gyration remote
RS232 control for my LCD and my Denon

in LinuxMCE

  Blu-Ray movie cannot be watched by simply putting in the DVD, it has to be ripped first

Hi VB Man,

REally? So I cant put a Blu-ray drive in LMCE and watch from discs? Is that due to copy protection of some description?

Correct - it's mainly the copy protection

Is that likely to change? Is it a restriction based on principle or some technical limitation?
