The AR1600 runs everything just fine. I run a ton of EMUs with it with no lag as well.

i have both.
i dont notice any real performance difference.

I purchase one of those.
I wanted to know there a way to save power when not using it. I want to have this running daily without shuting it down.

^ my upstairs one runs fedora 24/7.
the one downstairs stays on or i sometimes put it to sleep so its using minimal power.
either way it has a 90 watt power supply which is less than a 100 watt light bulb.

well, i got my Revo 3610 today and ready to go
i want to be able to keep the windows 7 install intact and boot to a USB drive. i don't have an external USB CD drive i can use to boot from. Is it possible to boot from one USB thumb drive and install on to another USB thumb drive?

I set mine to suspend after 10 min of inactivity, and it can full start from suspend in about 2-4 seconds. It can remote "power on" from this state so that would be what I recommend. (suspend = 0 power usage except for ram, which stays on to hold the system up, also a small amount of power for the usb bus so it can power on via a button press (or remote click)).

that's precisely what i did. created xbmc live cd ( as in iso) and then created an USB based XBMC install drive. changed the BIOS setting in Acer 3610 to boot from USB and then choose to install xbmc to disk. here you need to be careful to create a separate partition. xbmc live install program automatically installs GRUB ( a boot up program) that will give u options between win 7 and xbmc to choose from. you can view instructions step by step in the url below.

OK, so I just finally got XBMC installed on the HDD of an Acer Revo 3610.
A few things.
1) How the heck do I copy across TV Shows and what not from my external HDD onto the Acer Revo itself
2) How do I get my music to play once I have copied it across from the external HDD to the Acer?
UPDATE: OK, I copied across, or at least I thought I had, my music from the external HDD, however when I selected a track to play it would say unable to play. I then plugged in the external HDD again and it played fine.
What am I doing wrong?
terminal mode - doomplanet - 2010-05-10 08:58
tried to run xbmc from the usb stick, start off ok then it ends up in a terminal mode. What to do to start xbmc from the stick.
Also if trying to install it keeps on asking for cd, in thsyslinux config it does state cdrom-detect/try-usb=true.
