Help with HTPC
I need help engineering a HTPC with the focus on it being operated by remote. I will be using the Playstation Vue service on it most of the time on it.
I already know what you guys are thinking. Why don't I use a Roku, FireTV or an Android TV device? The reason is they won't function at two different locations at the same time. Due to the way Playstation Vue works, I can only stream with those devices from home. I cannot use them when I visit my parents if someone is streaming from my place. I can use non TV-connected device like a phone, tablet or laptop though.
So it occurred to me that I should able to stream via a browser at my parents' place with their old PC connected to the TV since technically a PC is not considered a TV device. I tested the theory and it worked so now I want to put something together than can stay at their house with the emphasis on simplicity.
Lastly, I have a spare I5 2500k, Asus motherboard and 16gb of ram I was thinking of using on this machine to get 1080p with no issues. So keeping in mind that this all has to operate through a browser, whats the best way to approach this? What else do I need?
Thanks in advance guys.
