Small Media Centre PC

  Ben Bawden 11:53 12 Jan 2011

Hi all.

I'm fed up with recording something on the DVR in the lounge and then not being able to play it anywhere else (actually I can copy it from the HDD to a DVD but it takes a while).

So what I want is:

A small form factor PC
HDMI output
An option for an IR receiver, so I can use my existing all in one remote
Able to record directly to my NAS

I'm happy building it myself, or I can also look at existing systems.

Any suggestions/recommendations?

It doesn't have to run Windows Media Centre, that title was probably misleading. It can be Windows or Linux, or anything else that will get the job done.

Oh, and it should also have/be able to take 1 or 2 Freeview (HD?) tuners.
