Other than VLC is there any other programs you guys/gals could possibly recommend to use? I plan on filling the 750gb HD with as many DvD's in my collection as I can fit. Might add another larger drive if I need too, but doubt I'll need it after I put all my favorite movies on there. Also is there anyway I can turn this into a DVR? Currently I am using RCN and have the digital cable and HD+DVR box, but I wanted something so I can save the shows/movies on my computer and not be stuck with the minimal storage I get on the DVR they gave me.


Well here are the goodies!

  • CPU - i3 530 2.93ghz Dual Core
  • Motherboard - ASUS P7H55-M PRO
  • Memory - CORSAIR XMS3 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600
  • PSU - OCZ Fatal1ty OCZ550FTY 550W Modular
  • Case - Antec P180 Black w/black steel
  • Video Card - XFX 5770 1gb Juniper XT
  • Monitor - Samsung 24" 1080p LCD Monitor (also will be hooked up to my 46" LCD TV too)
  • Hard Drive OS - Intel SSD X25-V SSDSA2MP040G2R5 2.5" 40GB SATA II MLC
  • Hard Drive Storage - Seagate Barracuda 7200.12 ST3750528AS 750GB 7200 RPM 32MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb

Total price comes to about $1200 with only Newegg prices. Can probably get it closer to $1000 if I shop around or pick up some of it used

That does look like a pretty cool app.
