  1. MythTV

    That's what I'm talking about. I need a frontend for HD with Myth. The original Xbox won't cut it anymore for the HD, so I need a replacement!
  2. mac pro video card

    I was thinking the same thing when they announced ATI and nVidia cards..
  3. I've seen several items of only a couple possibilities for miniPCI express wireless network cards but can't find anything in the forums or wiki with BRCM 4311AG or 4311BG. I have an HP nc6320 laptop that of course has Intel Pro Wireless with mini PCI Express which doesn't work. I want to replace it and in the online specs for the laptop it shows the one I have as well as two other possibilities which are the two broadcoms mentioned above. I'd like to get these cards but would of course only want to, if it works. Anyone have an ideas? Here's the link to the specs, if interested.. HP Compaq nc6320 Specs You'll have to scroll down to the wireless network card section..
  4. I've got an HP nc6320 with Core Duo and the QE and CI worked out of the box on install at full res which is 1400x1050. I managed to hook up my external NEC 1770GX and get it recognized as another display in OSX. I can choose all the settings and had to put virtually no effort into this. The problem is that I see some light to the monitor and I know that MAC can tell the exact model, but nothing shows up. I know I have the right ports, etc, but is there any way I can manually change the Hz or other settings to get the picture to appear?
  5. ATI Radeon Xpress 200M driver for OSx86

    Any more ideas on this? I'd love to use this on my HP Compaq nx6125 Xpress 200M series..
  6. Yes, I have an x300, no SE from what I can tell, that came out of an HP XW4300. With 10.4.3 8f1111a with JaS's patch, I have QE and CI out of the box. Then after editting the com.apple.Boot.plist or something file, I have 1280x1024x32. No problems except for the minor cursor repainting issues when scrolling web pages with my mouse wheel
  7. Sapphire X300SE HyperMemory

    Yes, I don't have this exact card, but I have an x300, no SE from what I can tell, that came out of an HP XW4300. With 10.4.3 8f1111a with JaS's patch, I have QE and CI out of the box. Then after editting the com.apple.Boot.plist or something file, I have 1280x1024x32. No problems except for the minor cursor repainting issues when scrolling web pages with my mouse wheel.
  8. Front Row

    Of course, it has all the graphics it needs. Read my post above. All you need is Quartz Extreme support.
  9. Front Row

    Ok, so I was able to get QuartzExtreme to work on an older Intel Integrated Graphics machine, and no CoreImage. So, it appears that in order to get the main menu rotation stuff all you need is QuartzExtreme and not CoreImage. Now if Nvidia drivers could at least do that, I'd be a happy camper.
  10. Mini ITX

    Do you have CoreGraphics and Quartz Express working?
  11. Front Row

    I can see this coming in handy by buying a mac mini for my car and making a car pc interface out of frontrow...
  12. Front Row

    But do you have Quartz Express or CI? That's the question...
  13. Front Row

    OK, so it seems that the only screen I can't see correctly is the sweet front screen that you choose Photos, Videos, etc. If I blindly use the cursor keys to change the item that is selected which I can't see, and hit enter, the menu list pops up. I just watched a Movie Trailer. Dang, it must require QE or CI to get the entire experience... Here's a clip of my console log which shows errors from Front row....

  14. Front Row

    I downloaded it and ran it on this machine with osx86 and I get an all yellow screen. Does this only work for those with the Quartz Extreme, etc?
