* mobo : compact + fanless = VIA (new EX is really well suited for a 
VDR; someone already talked about this one on the list)
* case : Antec Fusion / NSK2400 
(http://www.silentpcreview.com/article698-page2.html), the bare case is 
available anywhere at ~90€ (http://www.ldlc.com/fiche/PB00038035.html)
* a really silent power supply is laptop-like : PicoPSU 
(http://www.thinkitx.com/alimentations-80-10-c.html) + AC-DC block.
* a single slow silent fan can cool all that

(~60W peak power from the wall on my VDR : VIA C3 1GHz + HDD + running 
DVD + hardware MPEG2 decoding + 1 DVB-S PCI + 1 DVB-T USB)
(48VA full load on my home server, with 2 x HDD, EPIA EK-8000)
