That's what I figured. Thanks for confirming.

The Dayton subwoofers are back on sale, shipped free to boot (credit goes to porterhaus on this one).

10" $99: http://www.partsexpress.com/pe/showdetl.cfm?&DID=7&Partnumber=300-632
12" $120: http://www.partsexpress.com/pe/showdetl.cfm?&DID=7&Partnumber=300-634
- Note currently on backorder but expected to ship in a week or two

Deal discussion: http://www.hardforum.com/showthread.php?t=974045

Probably gonna get one or two to play around with and maybe replace the included woofer somewhere down the line. Gonna have two 2.0 speaker setups that can use a sub, and these ought to fit the bill perfectly.

A different DVI to YPrPb component adapter $11.45 shipped: http://electronics.search.ebay.com/_HDTV-Receivers-Tuners_W0QQcatrefZC2QQfsooZ1QQfsopZ1QQsacatZ61396QQsassZmonopriceQ2ecom (ebay merchant: monoprice.com)

Edit: these apparently work with certain ATI and nvidia 6600 and 6800 video cards. Might be ok for those missing their hdtv dongle.
Wondering if it'll work with the 6100 or 6150 igp mobo's (?)

credit Roberty for posting it in our hot deals forum.

Or purchase it direct from monoprice.com for a few dollars more.

Inwin microatx desktop case with 240w psu $29.99 shipped free

In the recent past most if not all inwin psu's were FSP group and above average quality. Not sure if that still is the case today (pardon the pun). I have no idea how loud the psu is, but i'm sure it wouldn't be hard to swap fans. It also appears to have a cpu ventilation duct.

$200 MIR and $300 blockbuster giftcard with the purchase of a Panasonic AE900U projector 1280x720p. Mail-in rebate valid on new purchases made thru December 31st

Search for a deal, request a bunch of price quotes, but definitely be patient. If you pull this off correctly you can get a new AE900U for $1550~$1700 AR + a $300 blockbuster gift card (which i'm sure you can use, or possibly ebay for another ($75~$125). If anybody gets a killer price quote be sure to post the dealer here ;)

The AE900U price searched for your convenience

Oh yea, finally getting a new Sanyo Z2, won an ebay auction for $775 w/paypal coupon. Won it from IAVI (international audio/visual). Supposed to arrive this week :D.
If anybody wants tips on how to get a similar low price on the Z2, shoot me a PM, but hurry because the paypal coupon expires dec 18th i think.

Mine arrived and I've built a machine into it. In general I like it. Quick summary:

Pros:
Sturdy chassis
Surprisingly quiet (nowhere near silent, but I was still impressed)
Decent access for the small size
Tasteful use of a blue LED (holy hell, I didn't know it could happen)

Cons:
Flimsy 3.5" door that could get in the way of bigger USB devices
CD drive door required some lube to get it to close all the way on its own
Power supply makes a very low level hum even when it's off, only detectable within a few inches of the case.

All in all, I'm very happy with this $30. I think I'll turn it into a carputer.

WinTV-PVR-150MCE, No FM Tuner, OEM, PN: 26692 - $49.95
Beyond TV 4 / PVR-150MCE-NOFM Bundle - $99.95
SageTV 4.1 / PVR-150MCE-NOFM / NVIDIA DVD Decoder Bundle - $99.95

Pcalchemy.com has acquired several hundred WinTV-PVR-150MCE cards that do not have the FM tuner. These cards were originally manufactured for a large OEM and used as the second tuner in the OEM's Media Center systems.

As long as you do not need the FM capability They work great with MCE, SageTV, and Beyond TV, and any other application that is compatible with the WinTV-PVR-150MCE card.
$50 PVR150 for the win. :)

Use this with the $50 150MCE = $45 hardware capture card. Hot imo. The fusion5 lite can be yours for $90 as well. Very good deals.

Yes, these deals are very tempting.

Now I need to decide Hauppauge (std-def) vs. Fusion5 (hi-def). :)

Edit: Here's the link for "DVICO FusionHDTV5 Lite, HDTV Tuner Card, ATSC, QAM". What sucks about this deal (even w/ the $10 off) is that it comes w/o an antenna, whereas if you buy directly from snapstream.com ($100) you get the antenna for free.

Shipping is $7 and change at snapstream.com and free (ground) at pcalchemy.com.
