GROUP#5 to me
- mcborzu - 2011-12-08 03:48
I'm a Group #2:
Mostly SDTV with occasional 720 content..
Mostly just looking for a Kitchen HTPC, getting a little bored and frustrated by XBOX's limitations. My main question is does ATV2 handle lightwieght/medium skins like Confluence/Focus/Carmichael/Alaska well?

I appear to be in group #1, as I don't own a HDTV. I just have this old thing with only two SCART connections. It serves me well, so I'm not immediately planning to buy a new TV. However I understand that XBMC no longer supports Xbox, so what would be the recommendation these days?
A second thing I would like to ask is that maybe I would prefer to find a solution that prepares me for the future, i.e. it might very well be that my trusty old TV dies on me within the next year, so I would like a solution that I can use on my current TV with just the SCART connection (a S-video to SCART adapter is no problem) and that I could use in case I get a new HDTV. (I guess I would be in group #3 if I had a HDTV.)
BTW, I have a set of USB hard drives that I liked to keep using, but I guess most solutions will have some USB ports.

1080p Flash Video on Linux? - sparky0 - 2011-12-27 00:16
Hi eskro, thanks for the awesome guides!
I think I fall into Group #6. I plan to run Linux (XBMC Live, or GeeXboX, or OpenELEC).
I am thinking the Zotac ZBOX-AD02-U would suit my needs well. The main thing I'm wondering about is if it will be able to handle 1080p Flash video (flv/f4v) without tearing, skipping, artifacts, out-of-sync, etc. Can it do this in XBMC on Linux?
Also, I'm not sure if I want to spring for an SSD, or cheap out and try a USB thumb drive for the OS. (I will have bulk storage on the gigabit LAN.) Will the thumb drive be sufficient for any of the distros I mentioned above? Would there be a noticeable performance hit? Will swapping kill it?
Thanks very much for any help.
