Why can't you just go out and buy a true home theater PC (HTPC) for your living-room? You've heard the grandiose marketing pitches from vendors touting the era of HTPCs, but at the end of the day, can you really find a PC that is quiet, looks like a DVD player and lets you do everything you want with a remote control that you can use while laying on the couch?
Many have already made their dream computer a reality in a classic midi-tower box version, complete with TV tuner, hard-drive recording and DVD burner. Now all that remains to be done is to pack it all into a small slimline case and make sure that this PC won't produce any major fan noises or overheat.
