i have a question regarding the aios. i am looking to purcharse an hd media player as i have been using a modded xbox1 with xbmc. it has been great for standard def material, but it is not that powerful to play HD content. but xbmc itself shines. i love that software.
i know with these media players, i won't be able to install xbmc on them. the cheapest box to install xbmc is a jailbroken Apple TV2. the thing is, it costs $100 and does not include an HDMI cable. but i am very tempted to purchase one simply to install xbmc.
with a media player, i am looking to stream from my network using windows 7 x64. i know setting up win7 to network can be difficult, but i will eventually figure it out. i am comparing 2 media players right now. the Patriot Box Office and the AIOS.
so using the aios, can i input specific shares, or does the aios only auto-detect every share and thats it? what about hidden shares? can the aios access hidden shares?
