    Default The NEW HTPC

    I just built my latest PC, a HTPC connected to my 50" HDTV DLP TV. Looks pretty sweet if I may say so myself. No OS is on it right now, but MCE2005 will go on there today, and it should be a VERY nice setup. There is no TV Tuner in this box, for two reasons. First off, the only HDTV tuner I know of is the ATI HDTV Wonder, which won't let me connect my STB to get all the digital channels. I don't want an antenna sticking out, ruining the setup, so that will have to wait. The other reason is that standard quality TV doesn't look too good on this unit, so standard TV TUners are also out of the question.

    But, I built this box with gaming in mind, so no problems here. Expect an article VERY soon about my HTPC reactions soon!

    Picture is here.
