I should imagine it's a standard SATA connection, with data and power plugs.

No it wasnt.
There is no any reason to set up SSD to htpc for me. I use old 2.5 HDD 250gb for OS and torrent download folder and 3TB usb external drive for archive.
But if u have any u are free to follow 2 ways: MINI PCIE slot for MSATA SSD drive and SATA2 for 2.5' SSD drive

Thanks, I plan to install openelec on small (16GB) SSD, guess it will be faster than USB stick.

By the way, did anybody try HDMI CEC adapter? I'd like to reuse my TV remote and this seems to be the only way (apart from LIRC, not sure whether LIRC works on Openelec). Or any other advices?
Thanks, g

What is the build quality of that keyboard remote thing?
Anything that resembles a kids' toy quality I'm not interested in.

Found this litle thing: http://flirc.tv/ - seems to work with OpenElec.
Main benefit for me is I can use one remote for both TV and XBMC.
Thogh, I doubt it can wake up this machine from off/sleep state.

Hello everybody.

I'm considering such mini pc purchase and would like to ask for current owners help. Would you kindly run some tests? The tests I need are:

1) I would like to know if OpenELEC can play smoothly Hi10P video, like Dennou Coil? It's a Hi10p 1920x1072,CRF 17(~8044Kbps),23.976fps release with 5.1, 48Hz(~3027Kbps) audio, will 1037U play it with no drops, stuttering and visual artifacts (banding, etc)?

2) Same HI10p question, but for 1080p,60fps, Angel Beats Master Collection This torrent is slow, but you need only one episode to check it up Wink I know I'll hardly ever find such encoding, but I'm just curious.

3) Can 1037U playback BD3D in OpenELEC? Is playback smooth, any framedrops?

4) And last, but very important, actually: does this platform provide DolbyTrue HD/DTS-HD MA passthrough via HDMI? Can it send pure bitstream to the receiver for actual decoding? What kind of a stream receiver displays during playback - actual or (L)PCM?

Thank you very much in advance!

Respectfully,
Eugene.

Not sure if those links are to fully legal websites, providing rips of TV shows..? :-
Any chance of other, more acceptable links?
