Quote from: XepherHeheh... we've got something like that set up in our living room already. Though no plasma TV, just a regular one. Well, the whole thing is the ghetto version of that. Much older Via board, less ram, smaller hard drive, and just a cheap usb joypad for a remote. Still though, it's networked, and so I can play all my downloaded videos and music in the living room... AND it's got a SNES emulator on it, with nearly every rom ever made, so that's nice as well.Now if only I could build one into my car...
Quote from: trekkie1701cWell, the CPU for the setup would be very small (depending on how much I modify the case I get and how small a space I can cram the stuff into), maybe about a foot wide. And if you buy the right equipment, it's cheap. Like this one: http://mini-itx.com/store/?c=2#p1601 (yes, that's a normal sized soda can)

Our rig uses a 1GHz Nehemiah chip, and it chokes on DVDs and DivX files when there's a lot of moving objects on the screen. (the slipsteam effects from Andromeda are really bad for this, they play at about 3 FPS) I doubt a 533MHz Eden like you linked to is going to be enough if you want to watch compressed movies and TV shows.
Quote from: XepherThere aren't many "tweaks" you can do to those boards. The chip is soldered in, and I don't think they overclock well. Like Will pointed out, some videos go down to 3fps in complex scenes. The only way around that is to reencode all the video into something easier to decode, and that's rarely worth the time/effort. Besides, that's way too much ram... go with 512 and spend the other cash on a faster CPU.As for physical size... yeah, our rig is about a square foot in size. It's running in the box the MB came in.
Quote from: Ashley_RoseI think I'd like it if Harm and I ruled the world. Stupid people would be put on a Jurassic park like continent...
Quote from: Bash.org heh, if we sent all the criminals to some empty continent and just left them there to die and showed up like 50yrs later like, "sup?" whatd u think they'd say? something along the lines of, "G`Day mate"
