    Not to long I was looking at case prices on there and a guy was selling a "new" media center pc. He built it and didn't want it. It was some Celeron system w/ PVR150 and GB-PVR installed. Oh yeah... it was running the new OS "Vista" so it was "future proofed" I think is how he put it.

    My GB-PVR Rig: GIGABYTE GA-MA78GM-US2H , AMD Athlon 64 X2 4400, 2 x 2gb PC6400 DDR2
    1 x HVR2250, HD Homerun PRIME, 1tb Western Digital, 750gb Western Digital, Antec NSK2400 Case, Logitech Harmony

    Connected to: Full 1080 37" Vizio LCD
    Current Projects: Moving my config over to a new i3 based rig and a Radeon 6670.
    To Purchase: More drive space!!!

    Here is the same guy... this time it has MCE2005 (No GB-PVR or Vista... shucks!) and an ATI 550 tuner. $1000... you can buy a nice HTPC for that from a reputable source.

    My favorite part of the whole auction is how half the pictures are stolen from Silent PC Review!!!

    I notice he only charges $9.99 for each item packaged.

    what does that mean?
    $10 for the card?
    $10 for the remote?

    I never bid on items that don't have shipping listed in the summary or have a shipping calculator.

    I hear ya... It has been a long time since I bought anything on ebay, and from the what people what for shipping, it will probably be a long time too!

    Nah! That's old news.

    I first came across GB-PVR on eBay back in late 2004 when looking for a Media MVP - a guy that was selling one mentioned he'd been using it with GB-PVR and also included a link to the homepage....

    ...and people here have been stuck with me ever since then.

    Cheers,
    Brian
