On the Cheap Side…

Let’s do some more shopping.

I already bought some stuff for the Frontend and the TV Cards.

I still did not start to buy Backend Stuff.

So i figured why not make a Backend out of the older Workstations at Home?

This is what i got:

Older Chieftec Tower cs-601
Some Asus Mainboard Socket 478
Good’ol P4 Northwood 2.4 ghz (stable at 3.0ghz with aircooling)
2gigs of Ram
2 200gb Sata Harddisks (Seagate Barracuda).
Some old DVD Drive.

Let’s try this, if everything works as expected i could spend some more money on other parts still to buy.

I am still lacking a DVB-S Card
