I would really appreciate it if you could, I have tried yet more ISO creation tools with no luck.. forgive me but I almost installed Windows 7 No

No problem. I'm at work at the moment so it'll be about 7 hours before I can upload it.

do the fans run when the ubuntu goes sleep mode? why cant they be completely silent on the sleepmode?

it seems aspireone netbook had the fan issue, too. yeah... its not nettop, but many of the tips seem to apply to nettop.

stonebat the two fans in the unit are silent when in sleep mode (at least under XBMC Live).

To save duplu the trouble I've uploaded my ISO image of XBMC Live 9.04.1 with the updated nvidia drivers, grab it below.

If you are still deciding between the Revo and Ionstar and fan noise is a concern for you, I would choose the Revo. I have seen (and heard) both and the Ionstar is significantly louder.

thanks to all - downloading now!

if the revo is quieter than the ionstar then I will get one of those as well.. good to know.

from my experience, the revo indeed is really quiet even if the fan is at full speed, but only when you lay it down horizontally. on its vertical stand, the fan tends to make high sirring noises when at full speed, kudos to the idiot acer engineers that obviously didn't test their product vertically even while it is marketed mainly for that position.
but I'm ranting again: from an objective standpoint, if you don't need drive bays, PCIe cards, a dual core atom, or optical out (of course you could use a USB plug), the revo is a wonderfully slim and compact HTPC. in the end, it comes to the form factor and extensibility.

You guys will see even more improvement on performance if you download and compile XBMC from SVN. A fix has recently been added to the VDPAU code that makes a big difference in VDPAU performance. My Zotac ION board has choked on anything yet that I have thrown at it since upgrading to the most recent SVN.

Has anyone tried using linux mint instead of ubuntu, with xbmc on top ? Was thinking about trying it today since i cant get my asrock to output sound via hdmi, not in ubuntu, not anywhere :/

I think your referring to THIS which was effecting nvidia iGPUs under Linux and which has now been added to the latest SVN Big Grin

How about integrating Samba in the images so it´s possible to use the HDD that comes with it?
