I have a beautiful but dumb 60" Panasonic Plasma so all streaming starts at a mini-tower computer (i7 cpu) with ATI Radeon HD6770 graphics card --> High Speed HDMI --> Outlaw Audio 975 --> Amps --> 5.1 speakers
Did you configure this commuter specifically for AV purpose? Howm many cores, or does that matter? I know it does for my kids video games which might find some duty on the system I'm thinking about.Please more specific about what service your streaming and the interface between the graphics card and whatever it is your streaming.Thanks
I built the computer in Dec. 2011 so it's a little old by today's standards but still plenty fast for me, it can rip CD's and convert to .flac faster than any of my friends newer computers. The CPU is an i7 2600K, 3.4 GHg, 4 cores, 8 threads, turbo boost. Not specifically built for AV but an i7 with the Radeon card will do everything very well. I don't game anymore, I got old, slow and tired of dying.I got the Radeon card so I can have dual screens at the same time: 1900 x 1200 on the Dell 24" and 1080p on the 60" Panasonic TV which is connected to the computer with a long Hi-Speed HDMI cable at one end and the Outlaw 975 processor at the other. Streaming is nothing special, just the internet. Log into Netflix, Amazon Prime, YouTube, PBS, CBS, etc, grab the screen with the mouse and slide it to the TV, hit the Full Screen button and you got entertainment. Another advantage of using a computer is the free VLC Media Player, which will play everything from Blu-ray and DVD's to .mkv files.
So... when you "log" into providers, there is a 5.1 signal to grab?
Correct me if I'm wrong... but it seems to me that you all are receiving 2 channel and your processors are turning it into muti-channel.
