Hey guys (and gals),

I am selling my Multimedia TV that I made. It is a Syntax Olevia LT32HVE 32" LCD HDTV. I built a Windows Media Center PC into the back of it (making the TV not wall-mountable).

The MCE System has the following components:

1x MSI PM8M-V Socket 478 Motherboard
1x Intel Pentium 4 3.0E Prescott 3.0GHz Socket 478 Processor
1x CORSAIR ValueSelect 2GB (2 x 1GB) 184-Pin DDR SDRAM DDR 400 (PC 3200)
1x Samsung 250GB EIDE HD 7200/8MB/ATA-133
1x XFX GeForce 6200 256MB AGP w/DVI/TV-OUT
1x VANTEC NXP-305-BK Black Fan & Light Controller Panel (Blue Cold Cathode Light Tubes)
1x D-Link Wireless-G Network Card
3x Ultra Silent 80mm Fan (Dual Ball Bearing)
1x Thermaltake PIPE 101 CPU Cooler for Intel P4 & AMD
2x Visiontek Xtasy Theater 550 Pro PVR w/Remote
1x Shuttle 220w FlexATX PSU
1x Microsoft Windows XP Media Center Edition 2005 w/SP2b (Legal/Licensed Copy)
1x HP dvd640 External DVD-DL Burner w/Lightscribe technology

This TV is FULLY FUNCTIONING. The TV functions like normal, with all inputs, etc. Once plugged in, you turn the computer on on the side of the TV. Then, you use the TV like normal. The PC goes to hibernate when not in use, and wakes up to record shows, then goes back to sleep.

I made this TV for a project, and am looking to upgrade to a new TV heh. I realized my need for a MCE machine, but lack of desk space, so I built it into my TV.

The PC boots DIRECTLY into Windows, bypassing Windows completely (Not the normal "Start MCE on Startup", this doesn't boot into explorer shell at all, bypasses it entirely.

I am looking to see if anyone is interested. Feel free to ask me any questions. Local pickup preferred. I offer NO warranty, but will offer tech support where I can. I built this myself, so I know it in and out. I have been using this TV as is since October as my primary TV (for Media Center, Xbox 360, and DVD watching).

Looking for ~$1300 OBO.
