Quote:I have read whole topic, and already ordered Q1900-ITX with 4GB RAM.
I will be using this as NAS and XBMC in one. I will be doing some tests
with Linux and Windows - platform is not really important for me.
As a NAS both will be running fine, as XBMC - I'm not sure which
system would be the best. A few points to take into account:
- there will be no tv headend.
- Optical output is not critical, but would be nice have it fully working.
- have a lots of tv movies, mostly in SD, however can convert them if
upscaling is bad (have to see it myself to judge)
- have old SSD 120GB as system drive.
- connected to Full HD 50 inches TV
Hi, quick update about my HTPC. I got motherboard yesterday, and very pleased with it.
Silent power supply 250W from old mini server, SSD and XBMCbuntu.
XBMC is ready in a few seconds after boot, it's not critical, as this will be NAS server.
Everything works great !
Someone in this thread posted Transformers sample to check upscaling, I couldn't see anything wrong playing this.
The only thing left is remote control , I have MCE USB receiver, but no matching remote.
HDMI pulse-eight is tempting solution ( my TV works great with Raspberry Pi through HDMI )
If anyone would like to perform some tests I can do it.
