Media Center/Server newb help
I need suggestions on how to go about my project to create a media center/server. my objective is to turn an old pc 2ghz, 512mem, onboard graphics into a box that I can play stored media files music, avi's, etc. . I would also like to have a pvr for tv but that is secondary, and a remote would be nice too. I'm not sure what software would be best for my project. I have been looking at mythTV, and freevo; Not sure what would be best. Also any suggestions on hardware upgrades would be appreciated, but I also am on a slim budget. I know I will need to invest on a decent tv card. Thanks guys.
