  • guys, meron ako pc hindi nagagamit and 2 weeks ago nalaman ko sira na pala yung psu.. kasi almost 2yrs ko na sya hindi ginamit.. ino-on ko lang kapag inauupdate ko yung itunes playlist ko.. tapos naisip ko gawin nalang htpc pag nakabili na ako ng PSU.. tanong ko lang, ang htpc ba parang PC lang na naginstall ka lang ng software like XBMC para magmukang media player yung UI?

    eto kasi old pc specs ko: wala ako balak magupgrade, yung PSU lang kasi nasira na yung hec 550ab ko.. maybe seasonic psu..

    intel c2d E6550 proc
    asus P5G41C-M LX mobo
    zotac gtx560 VC
    500gb hd (next time na ako magupdrade)

    baka yung case lang palitan ko kasi masyadong malaki yung lian-li case ko, hindi kasya sa shelves.. palitan ko ng CM N200 case.. around 2k lang kasi budget ko sa case.. like i said ayaw ko na gastusan masydo dahil mas prefer ko laptop internet and ps3 for gaming..hehe

    actually sa movies, 16gb usb lang gamit ko..hahaha enjoy naman ako sa mga nadownload ko na .mkv movies..naisip ko lang na sayang yung PC ko pabubulukin ko nalang..

    You don't need the GTX 560 on an HTPC unless you use madvr or want to try motion interpolation. Removing it will significantly reduce power consumption.

    The Core 2 Duo E6550 is fast enough for video decoding except for the highest of 1080p sources (untouched bluray video @ 20+GB per movie).
  • Bagong laruan. ;) Time to downgrade my overkill HTPC :D Pasensya na at cam phone lang gamit ko :P

  • san daw nabili?
  • Sa HK :D Total na nagastos ko is 728HKD, so mga 4-4.2k :D
  • punta ko singapore sa august21 sana makahanap ako msi am1m1 naman.
  • Sa HK mukhang marami naman stock ng processor, yung board yung wala. Pinaorder pa yung Asus ko, Friday ako andun, Monday dumating yung stock. Buti nalang 5 days ako dun. Hehehe. Next na bibilhin ay Sata Controller, bitin ang 2 e :D
  • @jc2mm2

    NICE score! hehehe :D

    OK na OK talaga yung AM1 pang HTPC talaga.. cherry on top is teh cheap tag.
  • Already installed the AM1. Galeng :D For normal computing use, it's pretty much flawless. Tried to stream 1080P movies to all our android media players, kayang kaya! :D Will do an in depth review if I have the time. ;)
  • delete ko na lang..

    so ok na yung on board video card ng asus P5G41C-M LX mobo ko?

    ================

    patulong naman sa case.. mATX size ng mobo, yung video card ko 9" long, around 4.5-5" width..

    i need tower case na 13.5" max height, not less than 6" width.. ganda sana CM n200 kaso 14.9" height nya.. kung meron cube type or htpc case pwede din naman kaso ang mahal sobra.. ang budget ko is around 2k-2.5k..

    o pahiga ko na alang yung CM n200? hindi ba baduy? hehe

    For most cases, yes.

    Try removing the video card and see how far you can go.
  • @awakeruze

    wala ba masyado diff kung hdmi or dvi? kasi yung VC ko lang may hdmi.. yung mobo wala..

    ===========

    ang hirap talaga makahanap ng case na max 13.9" yung height para sa budget ko..hahaha hanap ko lang lang tower & cube type lang.. hindi ko kasi type yung htpc case like yung mga silverstone.. parang malaking dvd player yung style..
  • wala ba masyado diff kung hdmi or dvi?

    HDMI/DVI is better than VGA when connecting to LCDs (monitors and TVs)

    If you can live with the higher power consumption (and electric bill), keep the GTX 560.
    Alternatively, you can get a low-end GPU (Radeon HD 6450 or the GeForce GT 630 64-bit) to keep power consumption low, while having HDMI and DVI output.
  • Hey guys, do you get a performance hit during passthrough of dts-ma or dolby truhd to your receiver? I'm using an ati r7 250x, parang bumagal yung playback when I switched to truhd output mode from stereo output. Or baka antok lang, I just experimented this kanina mga 2am :)
  • 1. guys lahat ba kayo sa torrent nagdodownload ng movies?
    2. pano kayo magsearch sa google? ex. "hercules 1080P torrent download", hercules bluray rip torrent download", etc, ganyan ba?
    3. XMBC ba mismo free yung download ng movies dun?
    4. nakakabasa ba ng subtitle yung XMBC? karamihan kasi nakukuha ko sa torrent nakagalay w/ subs pero pag play ko sa WMP wala naman..
    5. automatic ba yung na download ko na movies sa torrent may movie cover na sa XMBC?
  • @jac9
    1. Piracy is not tolerated in TPC :P
    2. Same as #1
    3. XBMC is a multimedia player software. It is used to play media files.
    4. Yes, it can read subtitles.
    5. Nope, you have to use XBMC's options to find the media info of the movie (Synopsis, Cover Art, etc).

    Please refrain from asking regarding torrents/illegal downloads, baka malock ang thread na eto :)
