Intel 64b 3.2.4 build should work, also the latest Generic 64b beta5.
Only the Raspberry Pi has HDMI CEC built-in, for other htpc's, you need the USB-CEC adapter from Pulse-Eight: http://www.pulse-eight.com/store/products/104-usb-hdmi-cec-adapter.aspx

Hi Folks, sorry for the long absence, life got in the way!

Mine is still going strong, to answer the sleep questions I never got it to work even after a BIOS update, but I just leave mine on 24/7 and there have been nil side effects. Over 7 months straight it has been powered up with just reboots for updates or odd issues (and the odd blackout).

To fix the "issues" with the lights:
  • I used a small piece of black electrical tape on the motherboard to cover the red LED.
  • I also modified the circuit board behind the power button, I replaced the crystal clear LED's with diffused LED's to spread the light better.
  • While the board was out I also added resistors to drop the current going to the LED's further reducing their brightness as it was a bit distracting.

After those small mods I'm extremely happy with it, it has been the best value for money media player I have ever purchased. I have yet to get around to buying more as funds haven't allowed however I still plan on getting a couple more in the very near future, I'm sick of having to power cycle the Raspberry Pi in my daughters room every couple of days (sometimes multiple times a day)..

Plug your Raspberry Pi adapter into something like this, it's a simple switch:

And no more cable hustling. Smile

That's not the problem, that Pi has a DC barrel jack mod and a power switch, its the time it takes to reboot that pisses me off!

My 1037 boots under 8 seconds (12 secs with the BIOS stuff).
Not really a life time, is it?
