The Ion platform shouldn't have problem with any video thrown at it, however I'm curious about menu speed and MP use in general. Do you find that the menu lags at all? I'm looking at building a Ion HTPC for light use in the kitchen, leaning towards the dual core N330 but curious if the single core would run MP reasonably.I have a Zotac ION A (Atom 330 based) runing as a MP client connected to a my HTPC server upstairs. The Zotac has had no problems playing any of the content that I've thrown at it. I'm using the SAF codec pack.
The menu is not the fastest but is perfectly usable. It probably also depends on what skin you are using and where you have your media files. To keep thing slick I'm using Indigo and have turned of animations.however I'm curious about menu speed and MP use in general. Do you find that the menu lags at all?

Thanks, it's unfortunate the Zotac 9300 mobo doesn't allow undervolting, an undervolted E6300 would make a good ITX cpu.
It's because HDTV is normally interlaced (1080i) - the GPU performs hardware de-interlacing and it's obviously running out of performance to cope with this in addition to running the MP GUI 3D rendering load. There's a whole thread discussing this issue here - https://forum.team-mediaportal.com/1-0-1-svn-builds-313/1080i-material-not-deinterlacing-under-1-0-1-0-a-58486/index9.html#post470166It seems that there is a problem only with HDTV (h.264/AVC). HD movies (720p and 1080p) are playing smoothly without any problem!
