I'm very good at Linux
As for the popbox comment, i wasnt posting that as a reply to you, more of "i dont even wanna hear that name" had 2 sent them back.
I'm no troll trust me and who says i dont want BD-ISO? i have many! what does that have to do with the price of tea in china? is this referring to my asking why use power dvd?? XMBC plays BD-ISO's and even a cheap O!player plays BD-ISO's why run windows and play your movies via power dvd which is just another windows app ..... again bringing back to the point, its either you want a HTPC or a COMPUTER with a big arse screen, which it seems thats what you all seem to be making and not really a true HTPC which does just that alone...
I posted because reading this thread and the consensus is the boxes mentioned cant do the job.. and they do them perfectly fine if you set it up properly... ie. not using it under on top of an OS. its why i said its either you want a HTPC or a Computer to surf.
All boxes mentioned at the beginning of this thread will do what you want and do it very well (unless your hogging it down with XP or windows 7) then thats your own fault as its not a HTPC anymore.
I am entitled to my oppinion as everyone else am i not? or is it because i dont have a million and one posts makes me stupid and a troll? Well sorry i rather read and learn and pick out the good from the BS before i post anything, and this thread is pure BS. how i know this? because even a eeebox eb1006 thats got an older processor, slower processor, less capable graphics card etc etc etc vs the computers talked about here can do the job running xbmc live. so these should have ZERO problems.
You say XBMC doesnt do BD iso... WEll NO IT DOESNT if your running it under windows!! its why i keep mentioning the live version, which DOES their is a plug in for it.
here is just one reference to ithttp://bloggingabout.com/bluray-play...mc-plugin.html
so again its back to what do you want?!?! A Computer that can surf and play movies to a tv or you want a Dedicated computer that is solely for Movies/Music/Pictures (not surfing the net blah blah) thats the big difference! its either your hogging down the computer with windows trying to do it or Not hogging it down, thats the big difference.
this is an A/V forum so i would think people making anything on this site would be for Audio and Video! not a PC with full blown windows on it and then running seperate apps like Winamp to play mp3s and power DVD to play your iso's.. that defeats the purpose of the name HTPC. When you turn this thing on it should boot up AS A HTPC not into windows where you gotta use a mouse and operate a seperate application.
so Yes i do know exactly what people want on this forum, its just seems to me they dont know what they want themselves and going in an entire wrong direction trying to get it done.
ps yes i know the difference between the boxes listed here and the REvo 3610, but i also now mentioned a eeebox thats less capable than these listed that still runs it perfectly fine.
But hey i'm a troll and have under a 1000 posts so i know not what i do.
continue your topic i wount interject anymore.
