    There are several if you search with google but they are all very expensive. If you were localish to Tampabay area I would do it for you. Im sure there are others here on the board that wouldnt mind helping you out building one.

    Seems that you would want someone close by your neighborhood for a custom job. Or are you open to having one built to your specs, and then you take care of the delivery etc...?

    There are several places that get you started, like eHomeUpgrade , as long as you are a semi-literate compu-tinkerer [​IMG] There are lots of "htpc companies" that visit AVS that would be happy to oblidge I'm sure.

    Hmmm, this might be an idea for a future endeavor - custom building HTPC's and shipping them out. Whoa, the PC part is easy -- it's that HT that will get you every time. Just imagine how many different remotes we all use, not to mention my idea of a black cabinet might be a little different than yours. Oh well, sounded good for a minute... ooops, I'm rambling!

    no im not a semi literate tinkerreerrer, more a fumbler. i can install a new hard drive, or load software, thats about my limit. config /set up other hardware , im in the dark. i dont care where someone is, just that they know what they are doing in a set up.

    remotes- i already have pronto ts3000 ..

    what im mainly looking to get out of this htpc is video processing/ enhancement , dvd copying ..er .uh.." backup", and aspect ratio control . at this point , i have a tivo unit, so on the occasion , a can send a file over to htpc for burning a copy.
