When I saw that I figured wow, I can hook that up and have all my movies and music on there, and if I get the Silverstone LaScala LC18 case there would be no need for a keyboard and mouse. My question is, does it make more since to go with the HTCP or the JVC reciever I listed?
Do you mean that you are going to use a modified xbox as a DVD player/game system? If that is the case, I personally don't like using a game system as my DVD player, I have a dedicated DVD player for that purpose. The xbox is a great game system, and it should stay as such. But if you are a gamer, it is definitely worth it. If not, keep the xbox separate.
My question is, how are you going to get the sound to your Northridge series speakers?
Berny- to answer the first question, yes i am a gamer and yes i would use it for gaming, media center, and dvd watching. You can buy a modified xbox for way cheaper then a HTCP, plus the modified xboxs have XBOX Media Center which is like windows media center. I can get the same amount of space as on a computer, and play games, music, etc on the xbox. I think its worth it to just buy that instead of spending like 2,500.00 on an HTCP. What do you think?
Second question- to hook up those speakers I will be useing my JVC RX-D702B reciever. I changed the remote to a PHILIPS RC9800I, and added a BELKIN AP41300 to regulate voltage and for surge protection, are those good parts? I read up on them especially that remote and it has ALOT of nice features.
