Logitech Harmony 1100 Review


Driver Heaven goes outside their norm and bring in the tride and true Logitech Harmony 1100 for review. If you have read previous reviews of the unit, then not much has changed. The unit is still very attractive, and the RF capabilites are great, but it costs a fortune and nobody likes having to use two hands for a remote […]

Acer Aspire easyStore H340 Review


I have to admit my bias towards the HP Media Smart Servers, but kudos to Acer for continuing to push the Windows Home Server market with their continued evolution of their product. The chassis is small and very low power…but it’s lacking the special software that I’ve grown to love from the HP units similarly priced. Desktop Review The Acer […]

PC Power & Cooling Silencer 910W Review


 The power supply is one of the most forgotten components to an HTPC build–choose poorly and you will be suffering from reboots, crashes or even worse, loud noise!

Moneual MonCaso 301 Desktop HTPC Case

moneaul03-profile.jpg continues their HTPC collection of reviews, this time up is a chassis from Moneual. Technically they sent them a whole system to review, but apparantly the chassis is sold separately as well, and that appears to be a very good thing. The chassis appears to be solid, but the system configured by Moneual is not so great. SilentPCreview With […]

TV Premieres: What To Watch 07/05 – 07/11

I’m sure plenty of you are excited about Eureka, which I’m happy to see continuing in their success. Other than that, I’m sad Reno 911 is on its season finale, my DVR is already pretty empty…maybe something like this will be good. Well, unless your interested in something like "10 Things I Hate About You." Always a good idea to […]

Video Library 2.0 alpha


I know all the rage recently has been around Media Browser, but Video Library is still making improvements and is completely free. It handles some things differently, and still looks pretty sweet.   TheDigitalLifestyle The plugin does not scan for folders at all. It simply queries the database. This database is populated by a hidden console app that is launched […]
