I just recently built a front nend using Zotac. System plays HD
recording fine. Here's what I bought from Newegg
o 1 x BYTECC 3 ft. HDMI Type-A Male to Male High Speed Cable
o 1 x Zotac MAG HD-ND01 NVIDIA ION Mini / Booksize Barebone System
o 1 x ADESSO WKB-3200UB Black 2.4 GHz RF Wireless
Multimedia/MCE Keyboard with Optical Trackball
o 1 x Rosewill Windows Vista Certified Media center Infrared
Remote Control RRC-126
This was all for around $400. install went smooth and HDMI worked with
out a hitch after the system updated the new install. Plus it came with
a VESA bracket to mount behind the Tv. The only issue I had was a
flakey USB CD drive used during install.
