    They look rather cool, especially for the price.

    Re: XBMC running on Raspberry Pi

    Looks very promising!

    For the potential cost (£25 was it?) it could prove useful for media streaming. There will need to be a nice smoother menu from XBMC for it though. I would be a bit gutted if it proves to be as useful as my £130 revo

    Re: XBMC running on Raspberry Pi

    For the size and price, this looks very promising and i thought my 1st generation nvidia ION box that sits under my TV running Xbmc was fairly small. I'd definatly buy/import one of these to put into my kids room to stream video off my NAS.

    Re: XBMC running on Raspberry Pi

    Does iPlayer still work on Linux? If not I would have to get something far more expensive just to use as a net adaptor for my TV... the TV already plays MKVs etc just the internet stuff isn't there.

    And also, any chance this will run windows 8

    Re: XBMC running on Raspberry Pi

    I think it looks awesome, perfect for a video streaming device, especially if not bothered about hd
    Why would you want to run w8 on it? A linux distro is far more suited.

    Re: XBMC running on Raspberry Pi

    Seeing it run XBMC means I'll be definately picking one up with the NIC built in. Can't go wrong for that price!

    Re: XBMC running on Raspberry Pi

    Now we can have XBMC in every room of the house, or take one around friends houses with a external usb hardrive, hook it up and away we go. A real boom ahead for XBMC me thinks.

    Re: XBMC running on Raspberry Pi

    Am I missing something, but the video seems to show it running at about 8fps?

    This is no where near enough for smooth HD playback if so.

    Re: XBMC running on Raspberry Pi

    Have you not watched the whole video?

    The menus are slow but the playback of the test file is as smooth as butter.

    Yes I have, hence why I asked the question.

    The video shows the FPS running at between 7 and 9 in the HD video demo. This is not enough for smooth content playback. See around 1:40 in.

    Edit - he actually states the FPS shown is incorrect. Hopefully it'll run at it's proper frame rate without any issue then
