Do .MKV files play well? Does the HDMI port pass 5.1 audio? Does it play flash based video OK?
That's good to hear.tanker27 wrote:There is a small fan, thats virtually silent. I have had it running for over a week now and its slightly warm but not alarmingly hot. I might mod the case but for now it is fine.
In my case I'd be adding on to existing media center infrastructure - I currently use My Movies for movie organization and playback and get TV via a basement-located HDhomerun (with plans to add a second so I have 4 tuners). I'm pretty satisfied in general with this setup, but need to add another client. Price (within reason) and ability to run other PC apps are less important at this point than footprint, quietness, power consumption, and uniformity of interface (everything working the same way makes for a happier household). If not for the TV tuning requirement and desire for uniformity, I'd probably at leasy consider the WD TV Live HD, although for a few bucks more your setup is a lot nicer/more flexible.tanker27 wrote:Xbmc may seem daunting because its linux based but really it isnt. Most of the Scripts, scrappers, programs, and addons are already written and its simple as downloading them with the remote and running them.
