That's really interesting as my setup has passed the Girlfriend test Smile the beauty of the intel NUC is the speed and reliability, it turns on and off with the remote as well.

I don't think I could take the speed reduction for the sake of an integrated box, but its great to hear you are happy with the solution in your setup.

I think thats because your running OpenELEC on yours, mine was running windows 7 which caused no end of problems.

The speed reduction is barely recognisible tbh.

Ahh yes Windows XBMC is horrendous for stability haha.

I used to use that before I joined the team and saw the light Smile

So next on the tech list will be a Sonos system for the house. Decided I didnt want my home cinema speakers being blasted just so music can be heard in various rooms of the house.

Planning to get one for the master bedroom and one for the kitchen for starters. These will then be used for music fed from the NAS instead of using XBMC.

Stay tuned for more!
