The Pivos should be a mature solution, but if you give it a few more months, you may be interested in the CuBox-i1 as a cheap solution.

Wow, can't believe I haven't heard of the CuBox before. How close is it to working with XBMC or does it even work with it yet?

Ouya looks like a dead end. I can't get an answer out of them. Support tickets keep coming back with no answer. I suppose they don't care about set-top, only games. They may have their sites on "a low end Valve". Bummer.

I don't understand why they won't respond... At first I thought maybe they just didn't want the bad PR of admitting that it wasn't possible, but Tegra3 specs state that mpeg2 hardware decoding is supported.

Very frustrating. Will probably end up giving my ouya away and buying a cubox-i.

Ouya did reply a few weeks ago. Mpeg2 support is "on the list" but there is no way of knowing when it will show up.

I just got a Cubox-i4Pro and I verify that MPEG-2 works out of the box with no licenses or sw decoding. There's still some work to be done to get it totally solid, but with the number of developers working on it from different angles, I would be surprised if we don't have a solid XBMC load in 4 months!
