Misleading HTPC comments...

Useless as dedicated box running linux/xbmc as the "Intel HD Graphics" have problems de-interlacing 1080i (too slow) and also problems with bit streamed audio and output of 23.976fps.

Pay a bit more for a lot more.

My d54250wkyh outputs at 23.976 just fine but as you say its a little bit more.

I wish Intel would get a move on and clear the n2820 variant. They still have 6weeks of stock left before the n2830 variant confusingly still going to be sold as DN2820FYBK will reach suplliers. Need to check the box has H22962-103 or later on it or else it will be n2820 based.

EDIT: it would appear on xbmc.org that this NUC has been able to do 23.976 pretty well

which nuc do you recommend? I want an OS which supports a dual channel USB tv card, pause, rewind and streaming from websites with embedded flash.

I was originally going to go with Windows 8, would I be looking for a quad core?

It's a big topic ^
Have a look on xbmc.org forums in hardware section.
There's no right/wrong really in absolute terms it depends on...

Do you want bitstreamed audio?
23.976fps important?
1080i decoding at decent quality?
Power consumption?
Storage on device or on a NAS somewhere else?
Noise?
Price?
Games, or no games?
Full OS functionality too?

Talking about use in linux.
EDIT - Actually according to that thread the problem is in hardware and in all OS including windows.

Price? - £150 all in
Games, or no games? No games
Full OS functionality too? Nope


wow... didn't realise all that but I have answered your questions above

Additionally would like to control the HTPC using an android tablet (this is a luxury not a must)

Beware that if intending to use it with Windows 7, it must be 64 bit and UEFI boot. With legacy boot, HDMI audio doesn't work. This is according to the Amazon.com reviews (USA site).
