    Exclamation HTPC links&software resources

    There already is a load of information and software available online that is valuable for use in a HTPC. Here's a list of links and software, and if you know of something yourself, post it and I'll update the list in this post.

    Links:

    AVSForum: http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/index.php
    specifically their HTPC forum contains a lot of knowledge on non-SDTV output (HDTV, projector, etc):

    if you want to search their forums, be sure to search their archived stuff too:

    http://archive2.avsforum.com/avs-vb/search.php?s=

    Doom9 forum: http://forum.doom9.org/
    while I don't think much of Doom9 himself, there are quite a lot of developers of interesting software hanging around on his forums, like the ReClock and some ffdshow developers.

    SPCR & Forum: http://www.silentpcreview.com/ http://forums.silentpcreview.com/
    When looking for information on quieteting down your HTPC, SPCR and its forum are very valuable resources

    HTPCNews: http://www.htpcnews.com
    has some reviews (though often contain a lot of 'marketing speak'), and has a cool gallery for showcasing your HTPC

    TV-Cards.com: http://www.tv-cards.com/
    UK site with reviews on tv-cards and related sw/hw.

    videohelp.com http://www.videohelp.com/
    aka VCDHelp.com. Contains a lot of user experiences on tv tuner/capture cards, as well as standalone DVD players.


    Software:

    ReClock: http://www.geocities.com/reclockfilter/
    the perfect tool for fixing microstutter as well as converting framerate of video from NTSC film to PAL

    FFDshow: http://sourceforge.net/projects/ffdshow
    ffdshow is a mpeg4 decoder which can handle practically any mpeg4 format out there, as well as being a superb tool for post-processing video in any DirectShow graph you render.

    DivXG400: http://www.tac.ee/~prr/videoutils/divxg400.html
    easily add borders to video to underscan the video, for use when people hardcode subtitles into the overscan area (EVIL!).

    Girder: http://www.girder.nl/
    the ultimate RC configuration software
