I am really looking at getting the PIVOS XIOS DS because I can put full XBMC on it.


However some mkv files I have are 30gb in size...


I plan on getting an external hard drive (powered by the wall) to put movies on and transfer OVER USB.


I noticed this player only has USB 2.0



will I have ANY issues streaming over USB 2.0? I don't want any buffering at all once the movie has started.

Yes it is fast enough, the Raspberry Pi even has a slower Arm 6 class processor.


Video decoding is not done on the CPU it is done via dedicated hardware video decoders present in the chipset. The Xios is not as fast as a PC running XBMC but it is closest to the AppleTV2 version of XBMC but with more media support.
