Until I got a Logitech Revue. That is now 99 bucks and not bad. Does what you listed.
Hi, I have set up an area under the stairs to store a PC to hold all types of media. I've fully networked the house with CAT 6 cables from each room that has a TV to the media centre location under the stairs. I plan to use a media device in each of the rooms with a TV to access media content from the media centre. I'd like to be able to access photos, music, videos, internet and TV (live and pre recorded).
Can you offer me some advice as to what sort of PC i should consider for the media centre, including what accessories i should think of, and perhaps advice on what media streamers are worthwhile. I also have not chosen a switch yet to handle the network cables yet either, so your advice here is useful too.
I'm very interested in what is worth considering, and what i should look for if building the PC to suit.
Thanks for your help, I'm almost out of my depth here!
