My New Build, Home Cinema thread.
Well thought I'd come and update this a little bit.

I was having too many issues with running XBMC on the HTPC, kept getting a lot of HDM, CEC handshake issues etc and also was starting to run out of room on my NAS. Since the NAS was quite old it already had 4 of the max size disks it could take.

So out with the old and in with the new, HTPC and Netgear Readynas we're sold and replaced with a QNAP TS-451 4GB Model.

This was a bit of a gamble as I had no idea how good and reliable XBMC would run on the NAS, but the gamble paid off. It's great having an all in one unit. The NAS now runs XBMC whilst handling all of my movie software in the background. It's played every movie I've threw at it and even runs Aeon Nox without any hiccups. The NAS has an IR Receiver on which allowed me to stick my IR blaster on and keep it hidden away and be controlled via my harmony.

Great little bit of kit.
