Old Receiver HTPC White-Out Reviews

HTPC

Posted by Kevin White

 

An HTPC is a Home Theater Personal Computer. This device can be built just like a normal computer or you could look into other solutions such Media Center PCs and Android Media Players. There are also plenty of other non specific OS Media Players that are worth looking into as well. I built my HTPC and put the pieces and parts into my gutted receiver case. I really liked my decision to use an older style receiver and I was able to use the LED array from an unused LED exit sign. I placed the LEDs on the front for a nice bright color for the open tuner window. I wired a key switch to the power on/off jumper and added a cheap brass looking temp gauge. I really want to start a SteamPunk project, but I am not sure I have the patience for plumbing and gears.
