Some people like to look out of the window. Some others prefer to look at the curtains instead!

Yes I am using it even though I am not using all the functionality. For the moment, I use it mainly for multimedia viewing and as PVR (MythTV). Now, I am in the process of integrading dreambox (!!!) live streaming through the media center. As a server, I used a P4 2Ghz, 512Mb RAM with Happauge PVR-500 (twin TV tunner). I am planning to upgrade to 2Gb RAM since 512Mb looks that are not enough even though the system is working fine. As a front, I used a diskless mini-itx PC that is based on VIA C3 processor (build in MPEG2 encoder) and 512Mb RAM. My future plans is to buy a Z-Wave controller and controlling devices for implementing climate, lighting and security control. I am still expirementing with it but it looks that LinuxMCE allows you to control almost everything within your house!

You can also visit Michael Stepanov smart home blog (http://smart-home-blog.com/) for many usefull information regarding Linux based Media centers.

What processing requirements do you need for playing High Definition content from the media center?

A good requirements for HD playback is:

Dual core processor 2.0Ghz +
1Gb ram
and one good video card (256Mb min) with 720p or 1080p support, with HDMI out.

Interesting, I didn't know high definition requires such high standards :o
