Grrr ... I bought the exact same model from Ebuyer last week for £199!!!!

However, it is a great bit of kit and has taken centre stage under my TV. It can play MKV files, allowed me to watch (albeit a tab blocky from an Indian stream) England retaining the Ashes on TV without having to pay Murdoch and introduce my kids to The Secret of Monkey Island on a big screen TV.

Yeah, I know but it's £20 cheaper but I'm not unhappy, just feel unlucky!

Then if your bothered return it under the DSR and buy it again
#14
how well does it handle 1080p mkv?
#15
If Ebuyer have a 're-stocking charge' like some places it's cost more to ship it back and do this than he'd save on getting a new one. I'm happy with my purchase but I'll still be writing to Ebuyer!

Great! ... As long as you are using a wired connection or playing from the HDD. I found that over wireless it has a tendancy to jitter for the forst 30 seconds and then occasionally in the movie. After connecting via ethernet this issue dissapeared.
#20
can you put an optical drive in one of these?

Yes, it is faster but then you have Linux to deal with or install your own OS. I wanted a PC under the TV that my wife and kids could easily use and that's why I wanted Windows 7.

i think they are pretty small so I wouldn't think so, but I'm sure you can buy external optical drives for not too much money. (I'm no computer expert by any means, as I'm sure someone will tell me in a minute)
#30
Let me get this straight - does this have an HDMI socket? And I can replace this with my WDTV Live?
Gotta say, this certainly sounds tempting...

Yes faster CPU and it has ION2 chipset which gives better graphics performance. You'd have to pay this much though to get a Windows 7 version or look elsewhere for the R3700 cheaper >

No Win7 on the 3700

i was going to install xmbc live on mine and delete windows but i've read that you can actually run xmbc in windows, is there and disadvantages to keeping windows on the revo and running xmbc in windows?

thanks I wanted it for XBMC to be honest. I did have the Revo R3600 when it was £130 from ebuyer but it was faulty (loose HDMI connection) when I sent it back they had nothing to replace it with. I think I will wait until there is an option to buy one without Win 7 as I am paying extra Premium for that which I don't need.

There is if you pay more, but yes on the R3700 that was posted there is Linux. I posed the link earlier in the thread to the Windows 7 version.

Here it is again >

Yes, it does have HDMI and I've got mine going from PC into the back of my reciever ... but I'm struggling to get it play 5.1 ATM. I think I might have to connect the SPDIF as well.

No select the default digital audio out option in the sound properties via control panel

gona go for it sell the win 7 licence for about £30 and take the risk with optical drive
#39
If you want Windows 7 and don't already have a copy, then this is definitely the one to get. If you don't mind about the OS then the R3700 is probably worth the extra £20. Faster CPU, faster graphics, wireless N (useful for streaming HD). This one has a 90GB bigger hard drive though, but for heavy media consumption you will need an external or NAS anyway.

Can't speak for the latter, but it does have a HDMI socket. I've got this model with Vista hooked up to the TV.

It's absolutely superb. Can't recommend it highly enough.

Chipset's fast enough to do decent video encoding, intensive Photoshop etc.

Only slight problem is I wish it had more USB sockets, but nothing a hub couldn't solve if I could be bothered.

Quick word on the keyboard and mouse as well - it's not mentioned in the instructions, but the USB dongle to get these working is in the battery compartment of the mouse. It's not labelled, and it's not easy to spot. Far and away the best wireless keyboard/mouse I've ever used though. Our old Microsoft kit was a real lean-forward-and-stretch kind of a deal to try and get within the signal's range. No such problems here though. Superb reception from waaaaaaaaaaay back.
