I didn't add links as I expect you all know where to get XBMC from, plus the site is very slow due to the number of downloads so the links wouldn't have worked anyway, or at best been excruciatingly slow.
it says that it has support for DTS-MA and TrueHD, and it also says that it has support for Raspberry Pi. So does that mean that those two formats work on the Pi? I had been under the impression that they did not.
I'm one of those nuts who believe the Madvr makes a difference and that the audio is better with Lav+reclock (though maybe not the case anymore with the audio).
Also yea control.
But I do love the XBMC interface and how certain skins can put overlays with cool info and art.
I used to be one of those MPC-HC + Madvr +Lav nuts but over time my eyesight is not as good as it used to be (I can't tell the difference anymore even on my 82" TV) so I traded for the ease of use and the abilty to "control everything with a remote" of XBMC plus everything else that it brings to the table.
See you've been at the weed again - slick front end and jriver just don't sit well together. It is certainly a far superior playback application, but it can't hold a candle to xbmc in the slick/eye candy stakes, if that's what you mean.
It provides the same quality as MPC-HC with LAV filters and EVR (not MadVR) . MadVR is what i would call "ultimate" , not "above average". MadVR does kick the crap out of anything else when it comes to upscaling capabilities
