dr.Evol Wrote:Btw - anyone tried running the xbmc live in VMWare on win host?Umm ... very little point in that as you won't have access to GPU acceleration. If you have enough CPU horsepower for it to be workable under VMware then it would be (obviously) enough to play stuff natively on CPU alone.

ANyone experiencing black crush on the ION 330
Using a cheap THX setup disc (Toy Story) I cannot set the brightness levels without washing out the screen.

I'm not so sure that I wouldn't have GPU acceleration. I'm not an expert in virtualization but as far as I know virtualization takes place below the host OS, so it's not using win subsystem in this case...
It has no practical benefit anyway but Im just curious... maybe I'll try that..

Ah, that clears things up, thanks!

Btw which looks better...(i mean the display quality of the videos)..
Media player (with HW accelaration in XP) or XBMC in Linux??

I don't use windows, and honestly: i don't care

not sure if it's been posted but I ordered mine from here, they've just dropped the price again on the white model...

There pretty much that price everywhere now some a bit cheaper
Had another link somewhere for £218 but seem to have misplaced it

Does anyone know if it's possible to squeeze another 2.5" hdd in the asrock case?

If you pulled the optical drive, probably.
