How do You Watch Movies and Videos?
Today is a public holiday in Japan so don’t expect too much from us… And what’s better than playing video games or watching TV when it’s windy and cloudy outside, and around 10 degrees (Celsius)?
Yesterday while I was tuning up my HTPC, I wondered how you guys watch your DVDs, Blu-ray movies, and other video stuff at home? For years I was a hardcore DivX Box guy, but with the recent move in new and improved video codecs and format… I started to get frustrated with only one HDD and being forced to buy a new DivX Box every six months. I made the jump and built myself a decent, but far from prefect HTPC.
Since I am a huge Video/DVD/Blu-ray freak, I’m always interested in hearing how others are watch their stuff, and I am pretty sure we’ll discover new soft/apps/hardware, don’t hesitate to drop us a line below and share your gear.
As for me, my settings are pretty simple:
Sharp AQUOS 37″ Full HD LCD TV
ASUS P5KPL-VM Motherboard
Intel® Core™2 Duo Desktop Processor E6550
XFX 9500GT HDMI Video Card, with SPDIF out on HDMI
2GB of RAM (800MHz)
2 HDD (80 GB for OS and 500GB for DATA) plus a 2TB NAS
1 DVD Super Multi Drive (PRC1)
Logitech DiNovo Mini Keyboard
Vista Ultimate and MCE
CCCP Codec (Perfect for HD MKV files and other Dvix Xvid files in MCE)
