[mythtv-users] slim case for front-end Silverstone LC19

Just thought I'd throw in my experience with the Antec Fusion Silver.
It has a VFD and built-in IR support. The case itself looks great and
is large enough for full height PCI cards which I like since I don't
have a separate backend. The IR only supports MCE remotes though (at
least I couldn't get it working with my TiVo S2 remote) so I opened up
the front and pulled off the built-in IR receiver and installed my own
serial receiver that I had been using before I upgraded. This works
great and should work with any remote I choose to get in the future.
As far as the VFD, it's a nice touch but I don't find it to be
necessary or really all that useful.
