I came from a PCH A110, and I used YAMJ as well. Finally decided to go to an HTPC because the PCH was just too finicky - random freezes, difficulty adding multiple shares, etc. I looked at newer versions of the PCH, but apparently they are finicky too. Anyway, very happy with the flexibility and reliability of my HTPC. I would suggest looking at Assassin's guide - there is a free hardware guide, and the $25 for all of the guides is well worth it.
