Nice chart.  I really like the way you measured each component.  One of my
next projects is to make a combined front/backend on this platform.
Basically it will be adding a hard drive, PVR-350 card, and slim dvd player
to the existing setup.

Your experience matches up fairly well with my expectations (which are wild
guesses.)  I figure I'll be somewhere around 30-35 watts.  We'll see.
