Raspberry Pi 3 Media Centre with 1TB HDD and DVD in a VCR (MEHS) Epidose 43.
I use an old VCR to house a Raspberry Pi 3 media centre complete with a 1TB HDD and a DVD player.
The setup is simple as the new Pi 3 will drive a USB HDD and a DVD player as long as the DVD player gets the bulk of its power from an external source.
Connect the USB HDD and the DVD player to the Pi 3 and power the Pi 3 from a good 2.4 amp or more power supply.
Install Openelec, run and enjoy.
