This looks like a very cool device. It already has XBMC support and if we could get a stable MythTV Frontend with accelerated video I'd be very keen.





Generally known online as OpenMedia, now working for Red Hat New Zealand as a Solution Architect for all things Linux, Virtual and of course Cloud. Still playing with MythTV and digital media on the side.

I am going to think over this during this holiday and place an order.

At the moment, unsure what this device is capable of with the usb port (plugging WebCamera/ Mic) for voice/video chat via skype on Big TV :) would be fantastic.
