Intel NUC - Haswell (4th Generation CPU)
First post - thanks to everyone who has provided such great information on this forum. With recent patches (BIOS for power issues, beta 7 for IR module) Haswell NUCs are almost a "just works out of box" home theatre experience.

The one problem I cannot overcome, though, is pixelation/freezes with live TV using my PCTV 290e nanostick tuner. I get this with all the Openelec 3.95 betas. I notice similar reports here (around post 2743) and elsewhere (Openelec forums) but no potential fixes. The one conflicting report is from trsqr (post 2741) who says everything is rock solid stable since beta 3. Does anyone else have stable live TV on their Haswell NUCs? If so, perhaps you could report hardware, software and settings, which might help pinpoint the problems some of us are experiencing. My setup is:

nuc d54250wyk
290e plugged into USB 3.0 socket (this might be significant, a 2.0 socket would use different kernel modules)
openelec all betas with tvheadend
pixelation and occasional freezing, especially on HD channels, especially when there are graphics on screen (including xbmc menus)
UK freeview
