My plan is to fit gut my broken NextStar GX external hdd casing, it looks exactly like the large AppleTvs. I will be using the HDMI out with for the main monitor and the Composite video connector will be internally joint to a 3.5-4.0" mini LCD in the base of the case where the drive heatsink use to be. I will probably use a WiiMote with LIRC as my tv remote setup at home. I'll see about embedding mobile controls, and a battery pack inside the case. I plan to salvage the cases, power and disk led and the small internal fan. For an idea on how it looks and how i plan to place it all inside have a look below. (sorry i fumble for the right word a few times )
Any comments or suggestions, are of course welcome and appreciated.
