Whole Home Media Solution

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
In the process of build a whole home media solution.

This is what i have going on so far and will post pictures once i get it all going, installed and completed, fingers crossed by the end of this weekend.

Gear:
(2) APEX DM-387 Cases
(2) Gigabyte GA- 78LMT-USB3 w/ on-board HDMI HD3000 GPU chipset
(2) AMD Athlon II x4 3.0GHZ CPU
(2) 4GB DDR3 1333
(2) OCZ 30 GB SSD
(2) Roswell HTPC remotes

Total cost: 530.00

Software:
Windows 7 Enterprise
XBMC w/ MYSQL add-on

Configuration:
1 Media PC per TV linked via MYSQL to my PC that holds 6TB of Movies, TV Shows and Music
My expectations in by doing it this way, i can have both Media PC's linked to the DB via wireless network, nothing is held on the Media PC except for DB files, OS and XBMC app. Giving me the ability to pause in one room and unpause in a different room, as well as watch separate shows on different tv's.

Let me know what you guys think....

Thanks

Yes, sorry for the delay.

I ordered the parts and put it altogether. I will post pics soon.

Works great! Can watch shows and movies at 1080p, with no lag or problems.

Only bad thing is i had to switch out the fans in the cases, they were terribly loud. Outside of that all is good. Complete solution for all my needs, xbmc auto updates once a new show, music file or movie is placed on my main PC.
