Solved $500 HTPC (HD PVR+Comskip) Tags: New Build HD Systems Last response: October 19, 2009 8:04 PM in Systems Share Silverforumsurfer October 19, 2009 5:44:14 PM Hi Guys, Looking to build a ~$500 HTPC to use with Hauppauge HD-PVR High Definition Video Recorder. I have a Netgear ReadyNAS 1TB drive (2TB in Raid mirror), a gigabit network, laptop and 50’1080P TV. These were the parts I was thinking. Let me know if you have any suggestions. I want to mainly record HD TV shows and use ComSkip, as well as play back mkv/avi/wmv movie downloads.
