The old system was Windows media center (W7) - so parents are famillier with that setup. Its just the other things. Some other people have told me that 'time shifting' with and SSD will kill it rather quickly due to how its recorded, so ill probably put in another disk just for that and rely on the SSD for boot/caching things. Asking for a software solution really. Something of a script like: On recording finish > move to \\server\recordedtemp The on server have...
The "Parents friendliness" factor is the concern. My last attempt 4yrs ago failed quite badly (hardware wasn't really up to the task) Would be running via wireless initially, but i have the cables to run, just not the time right at this moment to cable the lounge room to the server. Guessing a Linux installation + XBMC or similar, iSCSI/SMB shared storage to the server. Bit im struggling with logic wise is: Recording in raw format. How does that get played back: (60gb...
Hey guys, Looking to build up a htpc as the home PVR seems to be dying. Existing hardware to use: Hauppauge hvr-2200 card USB HD card Corsair F60 SSD (60gb) No optical needed (Samsung HT BluRay player for that) Looking to use the SSD for OS + short term recording. Then dump the recording to my server which can then re-encode the videos down to something considerably smaller. The HTPC can then play those re-encoded videos + yet to be encoded videos in addition to videos...
Yea - just talking about the case fans - keeping at least one of the 140mm fans running all the time, will get a y-cable for the second shortly.Theoretically, convection currents of hot air from the video/sound cards would begin to make a slight flow of air upwards and through the rad too...sure not to the effect that a fan would have, but it would still not overheat the whole thing, probably come to rest at approx 45c or so (from testing so far) Will be running with at...
The H110 fits in mine, so id assume the smaller H105 would be a easy fit. Such a fiddle to get the H110 in.
Initial build of my new system. (Corsair 350D) Need to figure a different video card to get, but its a work in progress. H110 JUST fits at the top. Need to get some adapter cables for the fans (only one pwm header) but forfills my goal all ok. Little surprise corsair didnt include a PWM Y-cable.... Left the front fan unplugged, and will likely leave the rear one unplugged also. Want a near silent build. The video card is louder than the rear fan for the moment...

Want a near silent build. The video card is louder than the rear fan for the moment anyhow. Its so dark inside too, coming from my mega Lian Li v2010b with 5 White...
There is one on a local forum in Australia for $650...so tempting but I tend to inspect anything I buy over $300, and this is on the other side if the country :/70-200L II is my third most used lens unfortunately. 50mm Zeiss for landscapes, 17-40L for events, the 70-200L.My other lenses pretty much don't get used now, so selling them soon. 85 1.8 and tamron 28-75 2.8
Im selling my 85 1.8 atm, looking at the Sigma 35 1.4 to compliment my 50mm Zeiss for my landscape shots (stitched panos), and for party/walk-a-round lens.135L would be nice too, but my 70-200L II is too dam nice.....135L one day maybe
Look at the Asrock boards if your looking to do VT-D (device passthrough) - havent found an Asus/gigabyte board that has it working as yet.
