Need help with Htpc
Am looking to build a Htpc type pc for streaming movies/music to Oppo 103 via smb or dlna, ipad and to seagate goflex currently will be synology or qnap in future.
my question is I will be ripping blu rays to mkv and then compressing I was thinking along the lines of i3 or i5 CPU, motherboard with Hdmi output, USB 3.0 and at least 4xsata, with cheap graphics card. 4gb ddr3. I was hoping windows 7 could stream straight to oppo 103 via Htpc? Also wanted blu ray rip to be quick as possible for the hardware. Thoughts please.
cpu needed? For ripping encoding fast?
will windows 7 via network stream to Oppo 103?
which nas drive next qnap or synology will need to get to media via wifi on travels.
