Just trying to understand when these are shipping.
I received mine a LONG time ago (pre-ordered before it ever shipped). I've had a few issues, but I think I might have figured the whole thing out. They use an electronic "power switch", and I think it's been sending an off signal at random. Not 100% sure that's it, as it's run for weeks without shutting down, then won't stay on for a day. Very weird.
Like I said earlier, as a playback device, it's about 5 times the speed you need. Boots in about 10 seconds (with an SSD), SageTV is running a few seconds later (never timed it). It has handled every video I threw at it, including very high bit rate VC-1 and mpg4.
I even ran City of Heroes on it at 1920x1080. Had to turn a few settings down, but it could handle it. (I can't even run that at full blast on my i7 + 680!!!)
Even ran a HDTV show while connected by VNC by accident one day. Worked, but that did cause a FEW weird graphics effects during the playback. lol
