Mine is unpluged right now, i want to see if I miss it. If I don't I will return it and put the proceeds towards another 4gb slim.
I've been following this thread for a while and seriously, I wish people would take a drag on a cigarette or whatever they need to do to relax. Yeah, you've spent money on a product with a lot of promise. I understand that when you purchase something, you expect it to work. I have the Echo because I want it to do one simple thing, and that's feed my HTPC experience to my bedroom. I have another HP extender that this is replacing because A.) It's supported, B.) It's smaller (I'm a bit of a minimalist), and C.) It doesn't turn itself on in the middle of the night so that I have to fumble around for a remote in the dark, dazed and confused. Yeah, I wish the menu scrolling was as smooth as it is on the XBox and I don't understand why some videos taken with my DSLR work perfectly whereas others produce only audio, but it's not a deal breaker for me.
I get that the XBox has a smoother performance and better file support, but understand that Microsoft has had a LOOOOONG time to make this experience work and integrate it. After all, the XBox and WMC are both Microsoft products and they have virtually unlimited resources both financially and in manpower, and they're not exactly making it easy for anyone else to work with them at the moment.
My Echo works perfectly in feeding my TV, pictures, and music back to my bedroom and I understand that's not the case for everyone, but for The. Love. Of. God., people... RELAX and let the people at Ceton do their job!
