richman    0

Hiya,

Iam looking to build my very own HTPC currently i have a shuttle (socket A) which iam going to use and i have most of the system spec line up.

CPU: AMD 2200xp+

Ram: 512mb (2x 256mb)

HDD: 200gb Maxtor

Barebone: SK43G

Iam looking for some advice on a few things that iam hoping you can help me with, what front end would you suggest i use for my HTPC, What DVD drive would you suggest i use (iam looking for one with a available multi region hack)

Thankyou all in advance

Richard

I recommend Media Portal, its totally free, quite nippy and nice set of features, ive been playing about with it on my main pc and im impressed.

As for what dvd drive just get any, you can just run a region hack program in the background.

If you have seen and like Myth, you should try this cross between a live Knoppix cd and a myth front end...

If you don't like it, simply eject and try something else. :)
