I'm using a Revo R3600 as an MD.
It works beautifully - when and if you get it up and running, which you will if you're persistent.
Maybe it's some lack of linux knowledge on my part, but..
- wireless is not supported by 0810 (at leas not out of the box, there may be other solutions?)
- in order for the diskless MD to continue to setup, I had to blacklist ath_pci (see here: http://forum.linuxmce.org/index.php?topic=9810.0
- as the R3600 has no s/pdif, I have used a Terratec Aureon 5.1 USB adapter http://www.terratec.net/en/products/Aureon_5.1_USB_MK_II_2120.html
which works out of the box. (It might complicate your life with the AVWizard chosing correct settings)
- I have a Sharp Aquos LC-42XL2E; I bought this set mainly following the idea it would be easy to support under LinuxMCE in view of the early demo video. I'm not unhappy with this set, but have found it extremely difficult to get properly configured. (I did use 2 monitors connected, 1 vga + 1 hdmi)
(Not only with the Revo) The AVWizard offers me vga, hdmi, hdmi2, and LVDS.
It turned out the only connection working was the LVDS one.
I found that my Aquos has a button on its remote to switch WIDE MODE to DOT BY DOT or FULL. In my case this button made all the difference, unfortunately I found (no hard proof) that it often requires a powerdown of the Aquos to kind of reset this WIDE MODE. I do know this WIDE MODE can be controlled using RS232. (I use Sweex USB to serial)
- A distinct disadvantage I find is you can't seem to easily take out the internal HD which could be put to better use in case you use the Revo as a dedicated MD
- If possible check wireless keyb & mouse functioning under 0810...
Conclusion: Do I advise against the Revo? Certainly not, but don't expect everything to work out of the box. Of course your mileage may vary. I would certainly look-up Totallymaxed's posts, I think there might be a similar box of the Asus brand that may be better suited.
