you would have to build it yourself. but thats easy wnough and it should be more than up to the job for well under your budget.

not so sure about building one, how easy is it?
#3
You might want to hunt down and try out a few machines because at your budget it's not so straight forward without a bit of knowledge to get a sff that will perform as expected.
To use internet on a TV may require matching the panels resolution or close and many sff systems cannot do this.
You may want to either re think budget or go with a netbook./smallish standard pc.

OK thanks, I'm prepared to spend a bt more, say up to £400 for the base.
Don't need operating system as will use linux, just not sure where to start looking on "build your own" pcs.

They are actually really easy to build. surprisingly easy. There's very few pieces that can go in the wrong place. have a look here:

What inputs does your TV accept? (what is your tv?)
What do you want to do with the media centre? just playing films from hard drive and internet?

TBH personally (and not to kock mini0ne's ad) I'd avoid atom based PC's they are underpowerd and if you aver want to move on to streaming HD media, they struggle some times at 720p let alone 1080p.
I'd buy something with a dual core setup or the option to upgrade later on should you need it.

thinking old socket 939 athlonX2...?

Its a Panasonic 42inch plasma, EDTV not HDTV (seems to handle 1080i from my Xbox360), has module slots on the back. I have the module that lets me use Component, S-Video and whatever the normal PC video is (DVI?).

|Uses will be just playing DivX and DVDs from HDD or optical drive, plus use it to surf the imternet. Not interested in gaming on it as already have a Wii, xbox360 ans PS3.

Think I might go for the Eee Box B202. Need to do a bit of research now.

Thanks for all the replies
