The HTPC Plan

I am wanting to build a Home Theatre PC (HTPC) for the lounge room for playing all of the video content that I have amassed. I will also use it for watching TV, and for recording.

There are many suitable components out there fore building the innards of the HTPC - however most of the cases out there are not the most elegant things I have seen. Far too cluttered and clumsy.

So - that basic plan is to collect together standard, off the shelf hardware internals...
Grab some sheet metal, some sheet perspex, various tools, and see what is the output.

I will try and share photos, thoughts, stuff-ups, etc along the way. Maybe it will be helpful to others - and maybe others will have some helpful feedback to help guide me.

Wish me luck.
