Just started using mine again. Have found it is great for watching TV streamed from kodi as I do fit stuff round the house. Plays back even 1080p no problems. And I have to admit I did like the windows 8 GUI.

For the price ( when they had that massive markdown) they are/were an incredible device.

I use mine for amazon prime connected to my TV using the HDMI output. It is interesting that it works at full HD with no lag. The best thing about it is that it is totally quiet, unlike connecting a normal PC to the tv.

 

The windows 8 GUI is actually great...when it is on a tablet.

I have kodi running on my main media PC and uPnP set up. Then I can easily access the kodi library with the windows RT tablet. All the videos play using the default video player.

All the media is locally stored on the main media PC.

Oh thats awesome. I have a Surface 2 (Windows RT) that I have for sale but never really tried out streaming things from the server to see how it works. I wonder if surface has Miracast? That is, can I wirelessly cast to the screen.

 

Its good to hear that these older devices can be used quite easily still. I have plex running on my NAS and I assume there is a Plex app that I can use with RT?
