Enjoy the high definition digital life easily.
- Nice slim design
- Support UI2 with overlay and 1080p video playback
- Two sound cards: one for analog and S/PDIF output and another - for HDMI
- Low energy consumption(?)
- Price about €100
- NIC (Attansic L1) is not supported from the box. Just follow by instructions on that page Unrecognized NIC to solve that.
- Correct drivers should be installed manually according to that wiki page - Display Drivers. After that box supports 1080p nicely.
- Some problem with display rose control under UI2 with overlay and HD resolution. Instead of yellow triangles it shows black areas.
