HTPC vs Media Server

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
So my parents, my girlfriend and her sister chipped in a bought me a new TV for Christmas since our plasma died a few months back.
They got me the USB dongle for it, but streaming 1080p off my sig rig over wifi does not offer good results. So I think I will return that and save the credit for something else.

I was going to build an HTPC for it, but since it's ethernet capable, should I just throw together a media server from spare parts? Only thing I'd really need to pick up is a good sized HDD and a sharp looking case.

I mean correct me if I'm wrong, but I shouldn't even need a HD video card if I'm just going to stream the files off the server. Just connect it directly to the TV with a crossover cable and go...

Streaming does not require much cpu power at all. If you are transcoding you will need a higher end cpu.

Well I've got a couple 775 boards laying around. I'll have to Google up and see what CPUs they can handle. IIRC one was a C2D and one was P4...

Nope both are P4 boards. Although I do have a spare C2D CPU so I would prob have to add a board to the build price. Unless you think I would need more CPU. But that would possibly mean CPU/RAM/Motherboard. Then I might as well just build an HTPC since I have a spare ATI 4350.

I would need to do some transcoding as the supported file types on the set are limited to: MPEG 1/2/4, H.264, DivX (VOD), Motion JPEG

A P4 is pleanty good enough for streaming unless you encode on-the-fly.

Yeah maybe to save the coin I can transcode everything on my sig rig, then transfer to the media server for streaming. But if I can get away with a C2D setup for transcoding it would only be like $50-60 more. hmmm ETA and actually I can just build and HTPC off that setup as well...oh decisions decisions...

Get a media player, wdlive patriot box or something like that. Transcoding sucks, full stop. If not build a htpc if you have the space next to the tv.

Yeah, I think I'm leaning more towards HTPC now. I was just thinking I could get away without spending any money on this. I should have known better...

A C2D for a HTPC would be plenty. Run XBMC on there and you're set. Windows Media Center doesn't play a lot of videos I have (mkvs).
Anyway how do you like the new LED LCD? Is it edge lit? Do you like it more than your plasma? Sorry I'm curious but you could just transcode the video to with TVersity or something but I'd rather have something dedicated like a HTPC.

Yes the new LED TV is awesome. It is edge lit and the picture is fantastic. I was up late last night playing with all the features. It streams YouTube, NetFlix, hulu and some other stuff natively. Plus it's only about an inch thick which will look super smexy once I get her mounted on the wall.

My problem is like yours, I have tons of movies that are not supported file types, which is why I'm interested in building an htpc for it. Well that and streaming 1080p over wifi leaves a lot to be desired.

For the Lian Li case, HDD, RAM(might not need this) and new board I'm looking at less than 300 bones so I think I'm just gonna build a nice little htpc for it...
