Xtreamer Ultra 2 with GeForce GT 520M possible DTS-MA bit-streaming - Roelio - 2012-03-06 11:39

It has been a while now and things are starting to look promising. With Eden around the corner and a new Xtreamer Ultra 2 with HD bit-streaming I'm starting to wake up again and look around me.

I'd love to see XBMC Linux working on the Ultra 2 while bit-streaming my precious DTS-MA content.....

Pre-Frodo nightlies, shortly after Eden final is released. If all goes well.

You should be able to bitstream DTS-HD/TrueHD audio using XBMC+W7 with 2.13GHz Dual-Core and Geoforce 520M now....

Yes that's seems to be correct. That's why I'm kinda interested in Xtreamer once more again.

Here is more information about the device:

Question is will this ever works with Linux..... I don't want Windows on my HTPC just XBMC Live with DTS-MA support.

It is built to work with both W7 and Linux. Since it is Nvidia GT520M chip, it should be great for Linux.

By the way, one of the guy brough it up in this thread just before you (in post #12)- Wanting a Pre built HTPC - XBMC ready.

The Xtreamer Ultra 2 looks pretty good. I've had Xtreamer before, and wouldn't hesitate to recommend them. Good support. The Ultras even come with their own version of OpenElec, but you can put any version you like on them.

Thanks for the information I'm looking forward to it!

the streamer ultra2 has huge problems playing blu ray, stay away.

You mean the USB 3.0 external BluRay player? I won't be using that Smile

My experience with the Ultra 2 because this is the best thing on earth for home entertainment!

For 2 years I'm struggling and waiting for software and hardware that is capable of Bitstreaming DTS-MA HD, a device that's can be turned on/off out of the box, reboot's faster then I can dream off and doesn't show any juddering with high bit rate content....

And now I finally have it all in my bedroom!

- Rebooting/starting the device is <10 sec.
- Remote works great with harmony 1100 even to switch it on or off.
- no more juddering with high bit rate movie's (even the killer sample 100 Mbit runs smooth)
- DTS-MA works with the epic lights on the receiver shining so nicely Tongue

Thanks Xtreamer, XBMC, OpenELEC and the people that worked on the new AE and are compiling Frodo Rolleyes
