Hey, have you listed a price, location and how much shipping would be to other parts of New Zealand? Also if you are asking for a PM make sure your Privacy settings allow your account to receive PM otherwise people can't contact you.

Were they no good for running XBMC reven? It was you who was waiting for an Ouya to solve your HTPC client woes wasn't it?!

XBMC on the OUYA is pretty good ATM, does crash occasionally (xbmc always crashes on a new platform at first, im 100% certain this will become stable on the ouya).

PLEX is very good on the OUYA, so good in fact i've switched to use plex. When looking at plex ive discovered Plex for Samsung TVs, which is even better, but requires a modern tv.

so i'm selling a bunch of stuff to try and fund some new tvs. not the cheapest solution, but plex is really impressive and i like having netflix, plex etc all built into the TV.

i wouldnt be selling them if i didnt discover plex for samsung.

Interesting. I was running the Plex server on my home server but aside from the Logitech Revue (which I eventually binned for a Raspberry Pi running Raspbmc) I couldn't find a decent client.

Good to know that the Samsung TVs have this built in - I was always very impressed with the Plex UI.

a $160 apple TV would also give you netflix, hulu and plex. A  bit cheaper then buying a new TV :-)

the ouya gives me netflix, hulu and plex. a raspberry pi gives me those as well.

but the best all in one solution ive seen is a samsung TV. ive been using HTPCs for over a decade, used many different solutions, and a samsung TV is the best ive used.

plex is amazing, and makes it very easy to watch streaming channels.

plex on ouya is great, however I rather just bite the bullet and get the best solution (use to drop $2500 on a HTPC without really thinking, so spending $1500 on a TV isnt a biggie, esp since I can sell most things im currently using to help pay for that).

Is it worth replacing my 256 Raspberry Pi with the Ouya?

i would suggest holding onto the pi, raspbmc is more stable than xbmc is on ouya atm. a few months that might change though.
