Here is a book meant for those home theater enthusiasts with some working knowledge of personal computers, and who want to create the ultimate home theater experience. The chapters are laid out chronologically and follow the authors' activities as they assemble various HTPC systems. The book begins with a detailed background of video and audio technologies to help the reader understand what the HTPC can do. The HTPC can do much more than play DVD movies on a HDTV-ready television. The convergence of digital computers and entertainment formats means that the PC platform is well suited to reproducing audio in many formats, including converting older analog recordings to digital. It is also great for capturing and editing home movies, creating slideshow presentations with digital pictures, video conferencing, and much more.
