I need some help with my new HTPC build Tags: Homebuilt Home Theatre Tom's Hardware Build Systems Product Last response: December 25, 2010 1:55 AM in Systems Share ceacea25 December 24, 2010 7:41:36 PM Hi Tom's hardware, I am building my own HTPC but I do not have much knowledge of how home theater systems work.
