Hi guys

nice forum u have here.. firstly i have some doubts and i would like some ideas, before i go out and spend cash on shopping.

I want to build up a full HDTV HTPC computer, so therefore i would like to get some good ideas from the current members regarding what is working OK 100%with Mythbuntu+mythtv.

My idea is to buy a Motherboard with HDTV embedded graphic cards Nvidia which seem to be the most well supported on Mythbuntu.

so i need som recommendations on the following setup

1- Motherboard with HDMI connector + Nvidia HDTV embedded Graphic cards to run videos at full 1080p.

2- which cpu processor to USE ? Intel DuoCore or Amd Duo Core?

3- DVB-S2 HDTV PCI graphic card for use with NTSC+PAL FTA HDTV channels via satellite.

4- Good HTPC combo case with (LCD frontal display+Remote Controle 100% compatible with Mythbuntu)

If anyone willing to share their setup, as it is essential to have a DVBS2 tunner card compatible with Mythtv and mythbuntu with good support on drivers.
As i want to get rid of my old FTA setopbox+ my old VGA media center computer.
And want to use one big combo with all features.

I will wait for your replies thanks alot..

i will now go to the introduction place and introduce myself
