MP1 MP2 ION DE
Might want to check out this thread https://forum.team-mediaportal.com/general-support-51/atom-ion-users-thread-86594/ My Acer Revo 3610 (similar hardware to yours I think) plays back all of the formats you listed, but I am only using it as a client, i.e. TV cards are in a separate server. My codec setups are in the other thread. I...

Here's the update, with some photos showing the M350 case attached via the VESA mounts to a cheap Dell 17" VGA screen. The screen is the only one I had around that has the Vesa mounts on it, and it works quite well - the picture quality is not as bad as I thought it would be, although MediaPortal does seem slow moving between screens...

I'm planning to get nettop for HTPC. I'm looking over ASRock ION330-BD, but this model is over a year old and i read, that there is new line coming, called ASRock ION2. I'm planning to use this nettop only with XBMC or mediaportal as HTPC and maybe 24/7 torrent client (if configuration will allow). Is it worth waiting and paying...

MP1 MP2 New; Dell ZINO HD DE
I used to be a field techy for dell, and anyone that has been there would probably never want a dell product entering their house lol. But even though I'd never buy dell products myself, I gotta say the specs for this are great for the prices. Not something that would blow all your savings and then leave you high and dry if it...

honestly i've given up on ASUS products.. they are visually stunning but that is where is ends... i've purchased components from them over and over trying to convince myself that they are good but finally i've given in.. they put too much emphasis in visual design instead of quality... but that's just my 2 cents..

Take a look here: Zotac ZBOX HD-ID11 Review: Next Gen ION is Better & Worse than ION1 NVIDIA’s Next Generation ION isn’t exactly the follow on that we expected. While GPU performance has improved, in many cases it’s a bit slower than the original ION thanks to the anemic PCIe x1 connection to the chipset. This isn’t NVIDIA’s...

the program is called hibernate trigger if i'm right. With this program you can execute a batchfile when a system goes in standby or comes out. When my system comes out of standby it waits a few sec to get the nic online, then send a wol packet to the server en then starts mediaportal. When going to standby I start a program killtask...

Me too. It's what I use as a TV server client, and 720p works flawlessly. In terms of OS, I tried Vista.. didn't like it too much, downgraded to XP, which worked ok. Now I'm running Windows 7, which works like a charm.
