Grabbed a D34010WYK for $267 at http://www.frys.com/product/7930130
Grabbed a 60GB Intel mSATA SSD for $79.99 at http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.as...6820167152

Prices are dropping like a rock now that general availability has started! That's a great price, congrats! You may want to add a wifi/Bluetooth card as well as some memory to finish it up. I expect you'll be pretty pleased with it :-)

Thanks - that will come in handy! Guess my last hurdles will be whether I can get the tuner sharing to work between my Win7 Ceton machine and the NUC. Fingers crossed. And making sure the Frodo MySQL library is compatible with Gotham builds.

Check out PseudoTV Live by Lunatixz its still a work in progress but an excellent program which can really improve the way you use xbmc.

The library should upgrade itself but if you have new and old clients on the same server things will get out of synch between them.

Picked up a D34010WYK earlier today, and have been having a hell of a time getting things set up. I downloaded the Generic X86_64 version of OpenELEC nightly build r16519, popped it onto a USB key, and tried to get things installed. I was under the impression (which could be the problem), based on some of what I've read here, that OpenELEC would support UEFI booting. Yet so far, any time I even touch it in the BIOS it renders the machine completely useless. Tried multiple ways of getting the USB key recognized (playing with gparted, using Rufus to format for EFI, building it in both Windows and Linux), but that was a complete non-starter. Once I got OpenELEC on, it refuses to recognize the SSD in UEFI whatsoever. Even tried loading Boot-Repair but it did nothing (GRUB options greyed out, pretty obviously, but even trying to run the standard repair it does absolutely nothing). I've tried searching here to no avail (most of the posts in this thread seem to be UEFI issues with Linux Mint, and not XBMC/OpenELEC specific), and spent about 2 hours trying to hack together Google searches for OpenELEC forum threads to read from cache (as they're still down), so I figured I'd ask here....am I completely missing something or should I just give up on OpenELEC completely and deal with a full Linux install?

Just receive my i3 NUC today, running latest version of the nightly build via USB, first impressions amazing! Plays 30gig+ mkv files with DTS HD, still getting a few micro stutters with video and DTS True HD the audio drops out every 10 seconds or so but all looking good!

I don't want to be rude, but " still getting a few micro stutters with video and DTS True HD the audio drops out every 10 seconds" is hardly what i would call 'looking good'.

my boxee box does all that without the stutters...

im still holding off on buying one of these because of all the reported headaches.

I have a few suggestions (I installed OpenElec without any issues, using the bios defaults, and the windows cmd script that comes with openelec to create the bootable USB key):
- Have you got it set to boot from USB first? hit (I think) F10 for the boot menu as it starts and select the USB device -- this worked for me using the bios defaults
- try a different USB key. On a previous build (non-NUC) I found it a little picky about which USB key it would boot from

I didn't use the pre-built nightly (I built from scratch), but they should be built the same way.

The service guy who helped me a bit, said you need to select LEGACY.

Something wrong with his setup obviously, it's a Haswell CPU and it performs like other Haswell CPU's, which is good. I'm guessing he has sync playback to display or something enabled which he shouldn't. There are some issues of course as you can see from this thread but during playback it's perfect.

My NUC finally arrived
Just installed Windows 8.1 / XBMC on it and configured Logitech Harmony One to power on the Device.
Everything works just fine for now Smile
I didn't like the default Intel Color Scheme, so I changed a couple of Settings there, but now it looks OK for me. (for now Smile)

How is the remote lag with the Harmony One?

A big "Thank You" to all the posters on this thread for sharing their info and knowledge about the Intel NUC and OpenElec. After receiving my D54250WYK yesterday, I fired it up this morning with an OpenElec nightly that I had been testing on test server. The entire purpose of my switch to the NUC from the C-200 Popcorn Hour is the playing of 10Bit MKV files. Secondary YAMJ was becoming problematic, overly complicated, and now rewritten to support newer hardware which IMHO stinks.

The file listed below played great! 17.1 Mbps bit rate (10Bit MVK) (High [email protected])

Just for reference NUC has 8 gigs of ram and 60 gig mSATA running latest OpenElec nightly.

Well, it's bad as it used to be from Day One on, but I accustomed to it Wink

I recently bought the latest harmony smart control remote and it is such a huge improvement on the harmony one.

The lag killed it for me, the new one is so much better. Not perfect but better Smile
