Post your setup pictures - keeganl - 2009-08-21 23:13
I am starting this because I don't see a place here in the linux section for people to show off their setups. I am personally trying to get a linux setup started on an older machine with the intent of building a new machine in the near future. I wanted to see what things all of you are doing with your setups. Make sure if you post, that you put your current specs and also pics of your setup.
My Setup - T5720 thin client that handles 1080p - gkornato - 2009-08-22 01:27
I have an HP T5720 with a PCI Extender.
AMD Geode NX 1500@6W, 1 GHz
512 MB RAM
2GB Flash Disk on Memory
The entire setup uses very little power, is quiet (no CPU or case fan, only has GPU fan which I will replace with a heatsink). It can play 1080 killa sample using VDPAU without dropping a frame.
All my media is on a Dlink DNS-323 with 2TB storage.

You didn't actually post this question in the linux subforum but in the general...
So here are what my setup's look like

Numus, Sorry, you are correct. Didn't realize that I posted in the general section. Hell anyone can post their setup here. I am just specifically looking for linux setups since that is what I will be doing.
Please don't feel like you are going in to too much detail. Curious minds want to know what makes your system tick, well at least mine does. I'm talking software and hardware. Down to the specific services you run, if you are doing an XBMC set top box style setup. Bring on the details.

This is mine.
With a drobo and drobo share feeding it in the garage
Mac Mini with two video feeds to the TV, one on hdmi does XBMC the other just has the desktop. This allows me to VNC in an do stuff on the mini without disturbing XBMC. You need the latest minis for this.
The mini has optical out to a naim nVi which handles 5.1 duties except for the fronts which is handled bu unity gain on the supernait.
XBMC runs pretty much 24/7 with hitchers Aeon mods as the skin. Its all controled by a harmony 1000 remote.

garyi.. What the hell are all those things on the wall... Are they for target practice
- Numus - 2009-08-22 20:22
Well... if you want a proper proper.. i would except you to have vinyl lining your walls

nice setup. I like the idea of the mini. How does it handle 1080p content?
don't be shy. I know some of you have some nice setups. Show these things off. I'm interested to know in what ways people are using XBMC. I've seen people integrate home automation so that when the doorbell rings a camera takes a picture of the front door area and sends it all to the GUI of XBMC with the pic and a message saying someone is at the front door. Are there any of you all doing unique things like this for your personal use? I look forward to see these setups.

Hi Kee, I only have a couple of, erm, obtain 1080 films and the play fine. I don't know though if I am sensetive or if there is an issue, but I feel a little bit sea sick when watching them! Seriously.
So basically 720 is fine for me. The TV is max 1080i any how.
