Considering reusing old SageTV case..

Tue Jul 31, 2012 12:57 am

I used to run SageTV (software PVR) which had a hardware extender. As my RasPi is mainly for XBMC, I'm considering reusing the extender as a case. There's enough room such that I could probably run cables from the ports on the RasPi to the existing cutouts on the SageTV box, and it would fit better in the TV environment than the bare board dangling off the entertainment center.

I suppose the really cool thing would be to somehow utilize the existing buttons on the front of the box in conjunction with the RasPi, as well as the status LEDs. I'll have to see what the power requirements are for the button/LED panel.

Anyone else have one of these?
