Thanks George, I want to use it as backend/frontend and connect two
laptops as fronted.
I have actually have aASRock as backend/frontend and it works well, I
need an othe HTPC to add the DVB-S2 PCIe tunner.
The sound will be stereo, but I want to add on the future a DTS
I want to know if the box and board combination are good for my DVB-S2 tunner.
Thanks and regards.
