Just wondering if anyone has an Xstreamer Ultra and is using it as a Media Director?
If so can you post your thoughts about the unit here?
I have done a search in the forum but cant see any posts about it.
I am interested to know:
1) Does it PXE boot ok (ie without any config changes) or is the NIC unrecognised like the Shuttle XS35GT - http://wiki.linuxmce.org/index.php/ShuttleXS35GT
2) How do 1080p MKV Movies play? Do you notice any dropped frames/stuttering?
3) What is the fan noise like when:
a) Playing 1080p movies
b) navigating through the menu (ie jumping from one orbiter screen to another)
4) Does anyone have a DTS-HDMA capable receiver - if so can you get DTS-HDMA to passthrough the HDMI lead from the Xstreamer Ultra to the receiver? On a sidenote, can LinuxMCE do the DTS-HDMA passthrough? I know that XBMC cant currently do this but they are working on it.
