RE: HD media player - consensus on the best?



Have you got sleep and resume sorted on it yet?

It turns off OK - but not figured out how to sleep it yet - I think it's
just a button mapping though - not sure what this hardware supports for
turning on via USB/WoL etc activity though?

It does boot from cold impressively quickly though.

Paul.
