    I want to replace my noisy xbox 360 with another media device and the A110 seems a very attractive option, without trawling through lots of stuff what is the noise level like? I want as near to silence as poss. Also i'd just be streaming stuff from the pc via a network cable under the floor to the router, any known problems? I take it this method would quite easily handle x264 etc?

    final q is bluray rips, how do people go about playing these? is it via an image file or via the bluray folder structure? I take it that it handles HD audio ok.

    Sorry for the q's but i've read a wee bit on the A110 but these questions answered in particular would help me alot.

    cheers
