HTPC in service at long last

My HTPC is in and working, the last hiccup was finding that the case was too deep for the cabinet (backs of cabinets are overrated anyway) - I measured width but never gave depth any thought. Windows Media Centre is legible on our CRT (I'm using VGA out & converting to composite using a cheap external converter off of ebay as our TV cannot cope with anything else) and good enough for standard resolution films. Sound is excellent using the SPDIF output. Just need to use it in the real world now and try the wife test.
