I prefer to keep mine in the original format.. no converting to mkv for me..
if anyone ever comes up with the ability to do menus i'll be set, plus that will include the extras...
makemkv can play m2ts streams, and iso's but they take minuets to load, also with the makemkv add-on your media isn't in the library, but this way it is, and with the built in support libbluray its like 3 seconds to start playing the movie..
Also in vs attached makes a huge speed difference. Anydvd goes straight to iso, in about an hour or hour and half depending on the size... i think dvdfab can do it also, but I'm not up on that...
For me the change is definitely worth it.

"I prefer to keep mine in the original format"
What original format? m2ts or iso? converting to MKV has no loss in video or audio quality.
"makemkv can play m2ts streams, and iso's but they take minuets to load"
Load from the bd drive, yes, but not from the rip on the HD. And when mine starts from the BD drive or ripped movie it starts from the movie, not 15-20 minutes later after all the previews and stuff.
"also with the makemkv add-on your media isn't in the library, but this way it is, and with the built in support libbluray its like 3 seconds to start playing the movie.."
All my ripped BD's in mkv containers are in my library (Just like my SD's in ISO with all thumbnails, etc.) and start immediately upon clicking on the movie, or a few seconds if going across the backbone. I guess I just do not comprehend this new feature. I think maybe it was added for ppl with Anydvd, maybe anydvd can rip to iso faster than any other format.
Using Makemkv I can Rip BD in 35-70 min depending on size. (Avatar 38-40GB 70 min on the Jetway with 1 GB ddr800).
FYI: mkv is the standard container for HD video and audio, espcially if you look ahead to doing more with you data.
Maybe you are not using Makemkv properly, or I just do not get it.
MKV can stream
MKV can contain video in different formats: H264, MP4, etc
MKV can contain several audios in addition to different types: AC3, MP4, MP3, OGG, etc
MKV can contain several subtitles in different formats: SRT, ASS. IDX/SUB, etc.
MKV supports chapters

I am also trying to get context menu working with the remote control but on Win7. I'm trying to remap some of the useless buttons, but so far can't figure out how. Any advice? Thank you!
Grez Wrote:Thanks to josh4trunks for his guide to getting this thing set up, it was really helpful. Everything seems to be working great now, the only thing I'm missing is a remote key to get the context menu up. I'm using the built in IR with a Harmony remote learning the buttons from the bundled remote. Anyone know how to map one of the bundled remote buttons to the context menu function?

Just wondering if there was a way to get analog audio out via the headphone (spdif) jack? I would like to connect this box to a CRT tv with standard rca audio in. Any advice?
I don't see an output for analog audio.

i think spdif is by design digital, you would need some sort of small external converter box, maybe something on monoprice?

Right, got that. But what I dont understand the jack doubles as a headphone output as well - headphones are not digital?
Another solution would be to get something like this, that instead takes the sound from the hdmi port and outputs analog audio via 1/8 inch jack - not sure it would work though.

Hey random question if any of you are still following this thread....
Is anyone here using the optical out for audio? If so how did you configure the system and XBMC? After setting it up for HDMI audio out I can't figure out how to switch to optical now that I've gotten speakers to use with it.
Any help is greatly appreciated!
SSD trim options on USB or SDHC drive? - godfreydanials - 2011-03-16 16:38
I have a Jetway Nettop that I am currently booting from a 4GB USB thumb drive. It has 2 GB of RAM and no swap. I plan to eventually install a SATA to SDHC adaptor inside and boot from an SDHC card.
I was reading the thread here about optimizing the system to run from a SSD:
Does any of this SSD optimization apply to a system that is running from a thumb drive, or SDHC card?
- fnc1 - 2011-03-18 03:17
i think the thumb drive and sdhc are different so i dont think it would apply... but i can tell you some people use the 8gb sata ssd drives.. and they can be had pretty cheap...
...the only reason i put some swap on was mine.. was in case i decided to play with sleep/hibernating...
- godfreydanials - 2011-03-19 00:59
Thanks for the input. The cheapest 8 GB SSD I have seen is $40. I paid $7 for the 8 GB thumb drive I am useing. Do you know someplace they are cheaper? I can't image one would be worth a $33 difference.
