Intel NUC - Haswell (4th Generation CPU)
Thanks to the both of you Smile

Where is the adjust refresh rate to video option? for 23.976Hz? I'm stuck on 60Hz at the moment. Is it because I am using DP->HDMI?

Picture looks a bit bright, not quite as good as my AMD so far? Might be a quick to judge however as I am standing right in front of the TV

Also seem to be outputting PCM not Dolby Digital?

This is the build I have installed:

On the plus side power on by remote works!! And the remote works as well thanks to the updated start script Smile

Tempted but VAT still makes it £100, and some competitors still have yet to reveal everything (e.g. NC3)

shipping to the US is a killer, was almost going to buy it but it's nearly $160 US - way too much for a case

Little size comparison!! Smile

Q: Is 8gb RAM overkill for a device like this? When would you need that much RAM?

None of my mates could be persuaded to jump the sinking ship Big Grin

Any ideas why I have no "match refresh rate to video option"?

For Linux/XBMC no, for Windows probably not

I've read, and re-read, the threads on how to fix it (the workaround). I'm not a Linux expert, but my trouble seems to be that I can't actually modify the resources file for the NTN0530. I do the 'echo "auto"...' Command, and then cat the file, and its no different. I've played with permissions (chmod) to no avail. The resources file always starts with "status = disabled". I've verified CIR is enabled in BIOS.

I'm running Linux mint 15. Fully upgraded it.
Help?

I had several issues getting Mint to work and switched to Openelec, much much easier!

To get the CIR working on Openelec follow these instructions to create the http://wiki.openelec.tv/index.php?title=Autostart.shautostart. I believe this will NOT work for standard Mint. Once the file is created and you're logged in via ssh run nano to edit the file. You can copy paste in the commands to active the CIR from other posts in this thread. Save the file! You can then either reboot OR run the file by typing ./autostart.sh - it won't return anything.

This assumes of course that you're on the latest bios, 21 I think it is? It's a bios bug that forces us to do this workaround so I suspect that bios version matters. Once this is done I think you'll find Openelec pretty polished!

P.S. I've just remembered, once the autostart.sh file has been created you can also just edit it via the smb share from a Windows machine - it's in the configurations folder. IF you do this you MUST not use Notepad to edit, download and use Notepad+ as it won't put end of line crap in the file like Notepad does. This hidden eol stuff trips up Linux!

Why not ssh in and edit that way, much better and avoids all crap with notepad.

Oh and the better program is notepad++

Note the two pluses.

Yes, ++ - that's what I get for responding from an iPad in a bar while having dinner and not from the desktop at home. I DID explain using nano however he's not very experienced with Linux, by his own account, and the SMB share for the configuration directory is pretty convenient for a Windows user to use.
