I did. I don't particularly care what chipset is inside, as long as it actually does what it claims to do. I currently use a modded original Xbox as a media center, and I've been looking for an ideal upgrade (something that can handle h.264) for a while. I bought a WDTV a couple months ago for a friend, but without network support, that didn't quite cut it for me. I found out about the Ultio and the Xtreamer at about the same time, and went with the Ultio for the simple fact that my older LCD TV doesn't have HDMI, and the Xtreamer doesn't have component outputs.
I placed a pre-order for an Ultio last week and they charged my card yesterday, so it should be on its way now. I'll be glad to tear it apart and report on exactly which chip the Ultio is using when it arrives, unless somebody else beats me to it.
