The Home Theater PC Adventure Begins
Well; we’re finally getting a Home Theater PC (HTPC). I’ve been dreaming of this moment for about a year or so, but never really pursed it. I’m the kind of person that doesn’t intoxicate myself with things I cannot have. So; I just left it alone. The wife and I’ve been talking about it, though, ever since I introduced her to the Boxee Box, showcased at CES 2010. The wife LOVES Boxee and she’s been playing with it on her desktop machine.
I’m starting to do my research and getting ready to emerge myself into the HTPC-underworld. Of course, I know nothing about this. I have some PC-building skills, but that’s only a hobby. I’m a big Linux geek and I plan to run Mythbuntu and Boxee on the intended machine. I’ll blog from time to time to share my resources, but I’m also looking for any advice.
To my surprise, after doing a Google search for “htpc” – the results were a bit disappointing. I immediately signed up for an account on HTPC Forum (without checking it out first). I realized after confirming my email address that this forum isn’t as active as I thought it was. Well that was a waste of time. With that lesson learned I’m looking for other resources.
