    Yes, another 'help I'm building a HTPC' thread :)

    Yes, another one of those threads.... :grin:

    I've decided to ditch the Boxee and can't wait any longer for the ATV3 to be jailbroken so I'm considering building my own HTPC.

    I would like to have HDMI output (with sound) to my Yamaha 1067 so it should be able to handle 1080p and be relatively quiet. I plan on installing Ubuntu as the OS and use XBMC (any compatibility issues with the components below?). I plan to stream most of media from a NAS running FREENAS.

    I'd like the flexibility to be able to add a BD and/or include a 3D graphics card at some point in the future.

    Here's are the components I'm thinking of using:

    Case: MOREX 6610 MINI-ITX 250W
    MOBO: GIGABYTE GA-A75N-USB3 S-FM1 M-ITX
    CPU: AMD A-SERIES X3 A6-3500 2.1GHZ SOCKET FM1
    Memory: KINGSTON 4GB 1333MHZ DDR3 CL9
    SDD: INTEL 330 SERIES 2.5" 60GB SSD SATA/600 MLC 25NM

    Any suggestions on an IR reciever that I could configure and use with a Harmony remote?

    Total cost comes in at around 2500kr. Any potential problems with this set up?

    Do you think it will do the job?

    Thanks

    Thanks for the feedback. I'll take a look at this. Price wise it is about the same, but my understanding is that the A6 would be more powerful than the E450 - which would also mean more heat

    Cheers

    I am not quite sure how the status for HW decoding of video on AMD GPUs on Linux is these days.
    Traditionally (last 3 -5 years) Nvidia GPUs/cards with VDPAU support has been the prefered / easiest route.

    Yes, I read a bit about that. I ended up changing to an Intel i3 and Asus H77 mobo. A little bit extra in cost but will hopefully save me hassles in the long term.

    Hardest bit has been trying to find a cheap IR receiver. I ended up ordering something off Ebay as there were no cheap local solutions
