Post: #1
I want to know which set top box models are the cheapest, which are the most expensive and some in betweens, the pitfalls if there are any and which you chaps prefer and why.

I'm shooting for a five room set up with a revo.

Well you should start by looking at the Nvidia ION overview for available choice and to check prices: http://www.linuxtech.net/features/nvidia...rview.html

The most popular choices are the Acer Revo and the Asrock ION 330, but ultimately your choice depends on your requirements and your budget.

Single core acer revo is about the cheapest and best bang for buck you can get.
