Thanks sysmg. That helps a lot.
COLGEEK, I had called txcesssurplus and all they gave me was what they have on the description and no further help. Now I can order the d-chip from amazon and be in good shape. Thanks again guys. And I gotta add, even with my P4 processor and 2 gigs I am soo happy with the way my HTPC setup is running. It can only get better.
