No problem at all. I am glad to help. Here is a link to some of the various commands you can use to launch different pages in WMC. http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials/24692-windows-media-center-start-up-customize.html Here is a link to steps that is commonly used to setup WMC in full screen mode. There are other ways to launch WMC to full screen mode if needed. http://www.tech-recipes.com/rx/4433/windows-7-automatically-start-windows-media-center-when-windows-starts/
Correct I am using the PCS-1 and I am using the Harmony 650 Remote. However any universal remote will work including your cable provider remote. I am using the Harmony 650 remote to boot/start the PC from a cold shutdown state. Other infomation on how I use the remote: The HTPC boot up into WMC TV guide in full screen. This gives my wife the ability to navigate easily to her favorite channels using the WMC guide. She really did not care for WMC to boot up to Live TV...
Do you mean the Simerec Sensor? http://www.simerec.com/ Yup the power button still works as it should you are not changing any function of the button. The sensor is tapping into the power feed to the switch to allow IR control. There is a two button control model and a single model control. I wanted the single button control.
I have used the digital copies without issue. At first I was compressing the ISO files to limit space usage using DVD FAB with BD Rebuilder. Now space is not an issue so I use the full ISOs and I can stream the full ISO's wirelessly without issue. Definitely use the digital copies if you can. Yeah the 3TB are definitely coming down in price. If possible hold out to black friday and/or Cyber Mondays. I bought tweleve 3TB green drives for $79-$90 bucks a piece a couple...
I really have no idea but I do not believe you can do that. Maybe someone with a bit more information can chime in and confirm. Here is a posting that might be of interest to you http://www.overclock.net/t/1330425/build-log-antec-isk-110-tinier-than-tiny/10
Actually this guy has a nice posting of his build using the same case from the image I linked above. http://www.servethehome.com/antec-isk110-vesa-mount-mitx-case-90w-power-supply-review/
There are third party options you can swap out but it will require some work. Here is a link to the inside of the build (http://cdn.overclock.net/f/f0/f0dff31a_Topview.jpeg). I will try to find a link to an image that just shows the PSU. Basically, the complete length of the left side of the image and moving to the right sides edge of the copper coils (1.5 inches) you see in the image is the PSU. There are similar cases that are cheaper and does not include the PSU. This...
Yup I agree as well on the NAS if you have that flexibility. I know exactly what you mean Clos and my wife does too. She likes the fact she can just sit and browse the list of movies being accessed from the NAS. I use XBMC (Kodi) as my main movie media player but there are a lot of other good options available for media players depending on your need. For the format I personally went with ISO files as the backups to keep things simple. Off topic: I have a ton of DVD's...
You don't have to go fanless but it helps if you can. The PSU in these Antec cases are fanless. Why I specifically chose the Antec case was the fact I wanted to have a reasonable small footprint for the HTPC. It was going to live on a shelf with limited real estate.
Oops missed your other questions. I would recommend a 150W PSU based on the results you posted. Also you can use this case if you like which comes with the 150W PSU. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811129080&nm_mc=KNC-GoogleAdwords-PC&cm_mmc=KNC-GoogleAdwords-PC-_-pla-_-Computer+Cases-_-N82E16811129080&gclid=CK-T2p3Jv8ECFSEV7AodHhEAtw I have not used this case but you should be able to hold everything you mentioned. But it is not the cheapest case...
