    i lose the lot, not a single bit on the lcd, then after a while, it all comes on, everything avi/mpg/dolby you name it etc, and its immediatly scrolling txt while like this, after about .5 of a second, its normal scrolling with only the needed indicators on.

    while its lcd is off, buttons work etc, but the way its built is usb->pic->lcd controller, with the pic working the buttons, so looks like its just the lcd conntroller that drops out

    Well, all I can say is the antec hasn't given me a single problem since I installed it. Unfortunately, I can't say it is the brand that fixed it or just pure luck. lol

    If I ever get called back to Ireland, I can bring you my old iMon you can test on.
    My opinion is my own.

    Most annoying thing is i bought it to make the htpc easier to use for all the family, the software looked good and made wonderful claims, 'navigate your entire collection with one button' like yeah that works.....

    no one has used it to this day, kids can use a mouse and wife listens to the radio, could have just bought a dvr come set top box and had done wth it, in fact that may be how it goes, then the htpc will become my new desktop......

    Ah, HTPC......not a carputer. Now I'm caught up. For an HTPC, I haven't found anything better than just using the Microsoft Media Center with a usb reciever and Harmony 880 remote. I like the computer better than a DVR because of the terabyte of cheap harddrives in it and I can surf the web on the bigscreen. Plus the VGA/DVI outputs for slingbox/TV make life easier.

    I've never used the HTPC iMon software, but it doesn't look very good. Only reason I love the iMon/antec is the controls in a car (and the programmable software).
    My opinion is my own.

    Not sure what it's called, but it is where you set up the individual program controls. The big black circle in the taskbar.

    Just ran across this video and then found the parts to do it ($25 on e-bay). Think it might look pretty good.
