Blu-Ray Player Update
I wrote a couple of days ago about a Blu-Ray player that I built, mostly using parts around the house.
I took a little time the other day, and underclocked the CPU down from a 2.4Ghz to 1.2Ghz, while dropping the voltage. I really didn't think I'd need that much computing horsepower to play movies.
I was right.
The system just finished playing "Ironman" (again), while I was studying (well, playing around with photographs). The CPU temp peaked at 29 degrees, and playback was 100% stable the entire way through. No twitters, snags, or bizarre audio.
