Hi all, I'm new to this list and VDR in general, so if I'm missing some points or habits of this list, please feel free to correct me.
I'm on the way of building a VDR. At the moment I'm searching for hardware recommendations, but this seems to be a hard task. What I want my VDR to do: - Playback of 1080p videos (e.g. the big buck bunny) - Watching TV over DVB-S (normal and HD, e.g. AnixeHD) - Recording of TV (should not be too "difficult" *g*) - Playing music and films from my fileserver What I'm not sure about is: - Full-featured or budget DVB card - CPU requirements for HD playback There was a quite silent PC recommendation, in a recent c't (german computer magazine). They used an AMD Atholon X2 4850e on a GigaByte MA78G-DS3H mainboard and got the whole system to be not louder than 0.4 Sone. The graphic is an onboard ATI Radeon HD3200 with HDMI out. What do you think? Is this sufficient for HD playback? And what about the DVB card? Is a budget card ok?
