My TV beat my HTPC....
#1
My RAM failed on my HTPC and I had to return them for warranty and I dind't had any others with me to replace them during the week I had to wait.

So I copied some of my kids movies on my USB stick since there's a media player build in interface on my Samsung TV. I already tried some movies in the past like the big 20gig Avatar in .mkv and it was playing like a breeze so I didn't had any concern about what I was doing, but I was aware the Tangled movie I have was stuttering like hell on my dedicated HTPC.

With nothing to lose I fired up Tangled and WOW... it was playing perfectly without any problem that I could see with my eyes (since there no GUI showing bit-rate and whatsoever)

Too bad the GUI of the media player is so basic and it's only working from a USB port cause my TV rock Smile

Now I wish I could install XBMC on my TV... Big Grin

Please back that statement up. I have an ION system, and have had no issues with HD playback.

Please note I'm not "bitching" about the ION board.. not at all. It's the first time I got problem with it.

I'm just telling I'm even more surprise my TV can handle some movie that can't play on my HTPC and dreaming about having XBMC integrated in the TV (Dreaming...)
