In a shameless bid to drive some traffic through my site 8) , I've started writing up the creation of an all-singing all-dancing Home Theatre PC. It's gonna have full PVR capability, as well as the standard MP3/DVD, using Freevo running on Linux (probably Debian, but maybe SuSE), and just for good measure, also serve up HTTP, IMAP, SMTP, LDAP, MySQL and SAMBA. The end result should be a system that puts those Windows Media Centres to shame, while costing about half as much, and without some of its little, er, security foibles.

Ranting aside, as I'm posting on this site, it's going to be a quiet little sucker - the main HSF is rated at 9dBa, and I'm currently wondering if my credit card will stand me a fanless PSU... SPCR gets due credit for pointers in choosing CPU and motherboard of course :lol:
