Here is my setup:
Samsung 3D TV
Samsung 3D BluRay
Synology 212 NAS
ATV2 (jailbroken with xbmc installed)
So I thought I had conquered the world when I jailbroke my ATV and installed XBMC. The problem is that playback stutters on many of my HD files. I do not want to have to convert my entire library to a format which will play nicely with the ATV, so I am looking for alternatives.
My NAS box houses all of my media. In a perfect world, I want a content streamer that will "see" the shares on my NAS, and work seamlessly to stream the movies that are on my server to TV.
I have been looking at the following options:
Building an HTPC
I do not need apps. I do not need extra ways to view Netflix or Vudu. I do not need Facebook integration.
I would prefer XBMC, but if it is going to have the same issues that I am currently having with my ATV, then I would be open to other ideas. I was informed on the xbmc message boards that the problems I am having with HD content is related to ATV only.
I am leaning in the direction of the XIOS. Has anyone used the Linux version of XBMC? How was the playback of HD media? Does it support 3D?
