RE: HD media player - consensus on the best?



Thanks to all the suggestions re a new media player, I bought an Acer
Revo 3610 last week and installed XBMC Live on it - what a fantastic
combination - great menus, good movie and TV prog info (with Ember MM) and
so FAST compared to my old PCH. Got pretty much everything working with it
situated in Node0 with an HDFury 2 HDMI to Component converter. Just have
to get resume from sleep working via a remote (Harmony One) and it's all
done.  :)
