I purchased the Everex gPC from Wal-mart, it does SD just fine, via diskless network boot.

I did have to edit the /etc/X11/xorg.conf and change the VESA driver to VIA, after that worked great.

The specs on the Everex are:
1.5Ghz VIA C7
512 MB ram
80 GB HD (not being used, by me)
DVD reader w/CD-RW (not being used, by me)

The power supply fan is a little noisey, but tolerable.

From another post to help consolidate. . . If you don't need the whole PC

Here is the motherboard that is used in the Everex $200 pc:

Some reviews of the board at the link say the following on power consumption:

4 watts idle, 7.5 watts load ... 2001&tab=4

My BE/FE is:
512 MB RAM
Athlon64 3200+
Hauppauge PVR-150 and PVR-500

Thanks to Cecil and all for the help and their work on KM

I also have the $199 special however was not quite as successful in obtaining satisfactory tv. Totally forget trying for a second stream from HDHomeRun. Even playing various types of videos were not smooth. This was with a F27 install ( I dual boot to keep the gOS )

I suspect the via driver is not quite the correct match yet.

The rest of the menu items seem to be ok

The box is very quiet and runs quite cool.
