Okay I have gone through many media streamers, popcorn hour, ntv550, miccaep600g2, now working with a med1000x3d and have issues with all of them. Used a old pc with a gt430 installed, installed openelec and wow, it works. It is the best interface by a mile, the only other one that comes close is the x3d, but that is still far behind to me. The speed of navigation, etc. Built in scrapping, speedy menus, other apps for youtube, trailers, revision3 etc. For local content it has played all my files, that these other boxes struggle with one thing or another. I REALLY wanted to med1000x3d to be my winner, 3diso openelec will not do that. But other issues so far are keeping it from being a winner, maybee in a few firmware releases. But is is still slower than openelec and no built in scraping for content etc. The opene elec beta has full hd audio, and is just plain awesome!! I ordered a zotac box to try have read they are great for it. But if you have a old PC , pick up a gt430 card and the latest openelec frodo branch, and bam. A awesome network streamer! Or am I crazy?
