I would definetly recommend an actual keyboard with mouse trackpad insead of the DiNovo if you plan on doing any decent amount of typing though. For me, the DiNovo mini serves well as it is about the size of your hand, is bluetooth for longer range, and has a mouse trackpad that you can switch over to "media center mode" to get the up/down/left/right arrow keys function.
More fun additions could include an IR remote power switch that you can easily program to work with any remote. You literally just push a small red button on the back of the switch and then push whatever remote button you want to turn the PC on or off and that's it. I don't even have to get off my couch to turn on or use my computer with this and the DiNovo mini... ultimate lazyness!! (I know there are probably better solutions for modern systems but my current HTPC is an Athlon 64 Socket 939 from around 2003 so I don't have those luxuries yet...upgrading soon)

druidcent wrote:Yeah, this happens to my HTPC as well.Every time the machine goes to sleep and I wake it up, the screen resolution is wonky. It appears as if everything was zoomed in by about an inch on each border. Fortunately I know how to get to the desktop and use keyboard commands to bring up the AMD Catalyst control center, so I can go into Desktop Management. I switch the resolution from 1080p to anything else, then back to 1080p, and everything is displayed correctly.
Any ideas on what's wrong and how to fix it? My google-fu wasn't up to describing the issue correctly.
