7.2. The Hardware Platform

Let's first turn our attention to the Platform aspect. This section presents a very detailed description of how to build a PC from scratch to form the foundation upon which you'll build the PVR. If you plan to use an existing PC for your PVR or if you'll be using different components than those listed in Exhibit A, you you may need to deviate from this guide. Variations in driver support make it impossible to define a perfect recipe for all situations.

If you plan on building the Linux version of this project and would like to use different hardware than what I've recommended, visit http://pvrhw.goldfish.org/tiki-pvrhwdb.php to see a database of machines built by others. This is a great place to start if you're not sure which components to buy and would prefer to build on proven designs.
