I see.



and the difference being?

I have to say I have never used any of the stuff on it, youtube, flickr, podcasts or torrenting. I dont like the front end, but aslong as it plays everything, has a tiny footprint, is silent, boots in 30 seconds... I dont need anything else. I should point out, I dont think your system or Myth is bad, quite the opposite, just I fail to see a massive advnatge in it over some others that are available?

If you are a nerd you can do stuff and make the front end better, this guy has all his movies indexed and stuff, I am going to have to try and work out how he did it.

I have recently bought the Popcorn A110.

It's a bit buggy and needs reboots quite often. I had a lot of trouble because my 3 year old Philips HD LCD has a DVI port rather than an HDMI one.

To get it to work I've had to do a bit of a lash up using both an HDMI and DVI switch.

The picture quality is superb though. The TV supports up to 1080i and my ripped DVDs look great even though they are probably coming through at 720p.

I bought a Netgear EVA8000 first but had nothing but trouble with it. Thankfully I got my money back.

And on the PC?
And what do you mean by rip, converting from DVD to mp4 file?. Also what is the best program to convert a file say divx, xvid to a format suitable to view on appletv?

At the moment I'm streaming from my PC, but is there any benefit in moving itunes library to iMac?

XBMC is what you want.

To view the link you have to Register or Login

It will stream all your media without conversion and is customisable. I run XBMC on my HTPC and wouldn't swop it for anything.

Cheers James, seems like I've got a busy night ahead then . Is it worth having both (Boxee/XBMC) or is it best to stick to one?

Both Paf and I installed Boxee and XBMC and have stuck with XBMC. Boxee takes forever to index your media and doesn't have the same level of community support. The XBMC forums are great. It does win on the web media side of things though.

If your talking about Hulu, as far as I'm aware, it doesn't work in the UK.
You will need a proxy server of some sorts, and even then it probably will be slow

My view is that if you are going to be watching lots of internet streaming content and don't have a big library then Boxee is the way forward. If you have a big library then XBMC is the way forward.
