The network became problematic today so I reset the Hitron box. No problem and eventually the network surfaced. The X470 machine was acting as a media machine for Apple TV.

I noticed that the X470 box did not appear on the LAN so I reset the machine and it still did not appear. Plugging the machine into a LCD and keyboard showed some problems with booting up to a screen off state.

Most of the time the machine is left to run iTunes. Now a new idea has come up to host media. NAS boxes vary in features and ones that support SAMBA are able to be mapped and iTunes media can be stored there. Then a laptop with Windows and iTunes can take over.

Reset Windows is the primary cure for a crashed machine. The SPEC-01 has a RM650 PSU so the machine is relatively efficient.
