    One word Answer: Gigabyte X570 I Aorus Pro WiFi
    This Motherboard would help you build your HTPC system.
    It has all the features necessary for your HTPC.
    Ensure that you have a proper power system in place to keep the motherboard safe of power fluctuations.

    Windows 8 HTPC has been blocked by now. No more Windows 8 HTPC now.
    Now you can still have access to the HTPC platform but only on Windows 10.
    As of now, Windows 7 has been debunked so you cannot use apps like Netflix on it.

    The best place to learn more about Metadata and MC is Github. It is the best place to get a primer on this topic.
    You would get the beginner, Intermediate and Advanced knowledge about metadata downloads over there.

    I use handbrake to solve the problem of ripping the TV series on DVDs. I rip them to mp4 format.
    I do not know about any extender compatibility available for handbrake.

    If you want to rip the series to MKV format then that is possible as well.

    It was problematic because it was not possible to install the updates from WU.

    Later a better method fas made available and needed just a single registry entry and few commands to install the unpatched MCE packages.

    In vista and later the matter looks more complicated.

    Maybe using the old tool switch one can convert a server machine to desktop and use the desktop package as they are and then convert back the OS to server. Then the so-called kernel protection should be taken into account…

    I suppose things will improve with Windows 10
