Yeah technically there's already all the holes needed in my house to run a long ethernet cable from the router to behind the living room TV, it's just a matter of doing it cleanly and safely, and until I get the motivation to do it, I guess we'll just copy these mkv files over to the SSD before playing them, it's not that big of a deal.
To be honest, you are not going to want to have wireless on your HTPC.. I tried that.. even using the best wireless routers and bridges.. if you wanting to stream 1080P mkv files, it isn't going to work.. 802.11AC will work.. But, for best, you are going to need to hardwire it.. I have tackled this issue in my last house and in my new house.. I stopped fighting it and just wired it..
That is interesting, I had no idea something like this existed. Will have to look into it, but for now we'll do with keyboard and mouse.
Might want to pick up a media center remote..
Also, look into doing XBMC.. they have a installer now that is just linux with xbmc on top.. just a thought.. works quite well
