Media Centre PC For Sale

   Posted by: Scott Lovegrove   in Media Centre

P_500I recently upgraded my Media Centre PC so that I could put in a new tuner that would give me DVB-S (Freesat) as well as DVB-T (Freeview). The upshot of it meant that I had to replace enough hardware to warrant buying a new Media Centre rig, and I have to say, I’m really pleased with my upgrade.

But that’s not what this blog post is for. Basically, I’m now looking to sell my old Media Centre PC. I could go with ebay, but to be honest, I don’t really think ebay is the best place to try and sell this really, it’s not the sort of thing people would look for. So I’ve decided to try and sell it through my blog where there will be more of a readership through twitter etc.


Case: The whole PC is in this case, which has everything it originally came with (apart from the PCI-e expansion slot).

Processor: AMD 4600+ 64 bit processor (Socket AM2)

RAM: 4gb DDR2

HDD: 500gb

Optical: DVD drive

TV Cards: 2x DVB-T (PCI) pinnacle tuners.

This is a really good PC to have as a Media Centre. It handles HD content that comes from the web (WMV, MKV, etc) as well as HD optical media, so if you put a Bluray drive in there it would be fine with that too.

The two TV tuners that it has means you can watch/record two shows at the same time, which believe me, is very handy. And when you do all this through Windows Media Centre, the experience is awesome.

Of course, this doesn’t have to be a Media Centre PC, you could use it as a Windows Home Server as it’s still quite a bit smaller than a normal desktop PC.

So how much am I wanting for this? Well, I’m hoping for about £150, but I am open to sensible offers. If you’re interested, please get hold of me on twitter or leave a comment on this blog post and I’ll get in touch. Pictures can be taken if required.

Oh, one more thing, I’m only realistically looking to ship this within the UK. Sorry for non-UK types.

Hi admin, i found this post on 14 spot in google’s search results.
I’m sure that your low rankings are caused by hi bounce
rate. This is very important ranking factor. One of the
biggest reason for high bounce rate is due to visitors hitting
the back button. The higher your bounce rate the further down the search results your posts and pages will
end up, so having reasonably low bounce rate is important for improving your rankings naturally.
There is very handy wordpress plugin which can help you.

The new boxes will integrate your television programming with internet capabilities-especially letting you search for your favorite
programs and movies and allowing you to link with
social networks. In conclusion the leverage multiplies
your investment helping you earn much more money
than you would without it, but also you should be very careful with the trade decisions you make.
