Bolts to the back of your flat screen TV, perfect for special movies...;-)

special movies????

I like movies with happy endings.

I Have one of the R3600 on my TV. It`s ideal for the internet on a nice big screen. Does stuggle a bit sometimes, but this one should be a bit better..

May I ask if the graphics in this computer is enough to play complex computer games?

it play bf2 on meduim settings
if your looking at newer games not really

great for 1080p films

You can do some light gaming on the Ion platform, but it won't be pretty.

Great deal, perfect for using with something like XBMC

The only drawback of the Revo is that it doesn't have a optical disk player, although you could always add an external USB one.

I considered the Revo but the lack of integrated optical disk player was a deal breaker for me.

Great deal though

Might be still available with Linpus Linux, 1GB and 160GB for about £150. Product code is 92.NVDYZ.UI0

I got that one, added another GB which I had hanging about from a netbook upgrade, dumped Linpus for Ubuntu and added a Windows 7 dual boot for good measure, to compare performance.

1080p is better using XBMC with Ubuntu than Windows 7, due to acceleration issues, although the forthcoming Flash 10.1 will supposedly fix this. MediaCentre plays 1080p properly though.

Looks cracking through my Sharp 37" 1080p telly and the Acer has optical out for sound as well.

Not to all TV's it doesn't!! I just bought the dual core one for my OH (£249.99 from play) and you get the bracket and bolts but it certainly will not in any way, shape or form bolt to the back of our 40" bravia!!

I searched for hours looking for a decent linux one with dual core and couldn't find one anywhere!!

His revo also refuses to accept the settings he put up! i.e it realises it is on a 1080p tv so sets it to that even though OH wants it set at 720p, each reboot it brings back the 1080p settings!!

I couldn't find any bolts with mine. When I noticed it wouldn't attach to my Bravia I didn't look that hard.

Needs an adapter plate from Vesa 75/100 to Vesa 200.

Large TVs have Vesa 200 fitting, smaller TVs have Vesa 75/100 fitting.

I couldn't be bothered ordering an adapter, so used some self adhesive pads :whistling:
They do the job and the Revo is still removable just by unclipping it from the mounting bracket.

The settings should stay 'fixed' if you use the nVidia control panel. You might need to download a new version from nVidia website.

some people need to chill before shouting about how it wont fit on their sony bravia and !!!! everywhere lol

for those that want the SINGLE CORE linux one under £145

Hmmm ok, thankyou for the info, I shall pass the details onto him. He used some super strong adhesive pads (keep the christmas decs up outside which are heavier) but it fell off the back of the tv yesterday anyway!!

:roll: get out of bed the wrong side?? I passed a comment about my experience!! This is a general retail price for these units, I was simply commenting about a few problems that I was having!! Grow up!

You can just use the smaller bracket on bigger TVs by only using 2 screws, it works fine. The VESA mount is meant to hold the weight of the TV, so a tiny Revo on 2 screws is fine.

I'd like to see you get any two screws on a 200 x 200 mount into the holes in a 100 x 100 or 75 x 75 mount....:whistling:

does anyone have any experience of fitting a (presumably USB) DTV receiver to one of these?

Yes, you can install a DVB USB stick and it works fine and will integrate with Media Centre.

The Acer mount is 100, so it will fit 100x100 and 200x100 fine, which covers quite a large proportion of mounts on TVs.

I have a similar problem - YOU ARE NOT ALONE!

My tv is a philips 42" and the fittings on the back of that are 600X400 - cant find an adaptor suitable - so mrs phatbhoy aint too happy at yet another appliance appearing!!

Dont fancy risking it on adhesive pads - so would love to hear from anyone who has solved this issue for a big tv

I used the supplied bracket and bolts and screwed the adapter into the air vents on the back of my 46" sharp tv. Doesn't block any vents or get hot and the bolts were slightly larger than the vents so it is quite secure.
Superb machine by the way, I got the dual core r3610 from ballicom for £160. Much better and cheaper than the popcornhour it replaced. Running XBMC with win7 and plays all my 1080ps flawlessly.

I bought the R3610 with 2 GB RAM and 250 GB HD with Windows 7 and works like a dream. I can definitely recommend this nettop and it's small enough to hide it away, especially if mounted behind the TV.

As previous posts have said, the vesa mount supplied will only suit a monitor, not a TV. In the end, I bought a vesa conversion mount from ebay which did the trick. Do a search for "Vesa conversion plate" and you'll see a few suitable items. It was a bit fiddly as I needed to raise the conversion plate away from the TV so that the bolts will fit but once done, it looks neat and unobtrusive.

What;s the difference between this deal and the £280 one, also at Play !?

For anyone that happens to see this thread and is considering doing this. Don't. I just tried it with a revo and the plastic clips holding the revo's case together couldn't take the weight of the revo, and split apart, leaving half of the case on the tv, the other half with the motherboard on the floor..
