Hey all,
I've been using XBMC on my Raspberry Pi, and I'm looking to get started with a HTPC, preferably with a budget machine that can do more than my RPi. The only major limitation I've come across is Hi10P matroska videos.
XBMC's note on Hi10P
Code:
http://wiki.xbmc.org/index.php?title=Hi10P
Ideally I would like a machine that can handle these at 720p, 1080p is not a priority.

Came across this little one; I would be throwing in new RAM, and if my wallet is kind to me, an SSD too:
Code:
http://www.amazon.co.uk/Zotac-ZBOX-ID41-B-ZBOX-ID41-Mini/dp/B004SLVXYE/
Does anyone know if it can handle Hi10P smoothly?

Feel free to make suggestions of an alternative.

    I don't think it would be powerful enough to do Hi10P software decode (and the GPU wouldn't help, as explained in the XMBC link).

    If money is tight, I'd either think about a cheap desktop PC or a cheap, mid-range laptop e.g. http://www.serversplus.com/pcs_and_accessories/laptops/hp_laptops/h5v09ea%23abu (about £260 inc VAT after the cashback from HP - decent i3 CPU with HD3000 graphics and HDMI output)
