I have a hacked first gen Apple TV that is running XBMC with the CrystalHD card, so I can watch 1080p content. The problem I have is that the tiny CPU in it occasionally lags and causes small audio glitches. I am clearly asking too much of it.

I would like to replace it with an HTPC running Linux, and I'd like to replicate it as closely as possible in terms of size, noise level and appearance. Can anyone recommend a case (and hardware) that closely matches it?

Which version of the CrystalHD do you have? If you decide to replace it and want to sell, PM me...

I have one I'm not using I'll sell. I don't know the version though.

I can check if you are interested.
