    Whats the best mod to get? and is it better to get it done professionally or is it easy to do?

    My main reason for modding is to use it as a media centre for playing DivX, XVid and MP4 files etc.

    Cheers

    Check out www.premodded.com. I've got the Smartxx mod which seems to be a good one.

    Cheers,
    Andy.

    I modded mine myself (non-solder Xecuter 2) and it was a mingin' nightmare. Everything works now etc but there were some heart-in-throat moments along the way (flashing my eeprom expecially).

    I'd spare yourself the grief if you're not that confident (as indeed I was not) and get it modded by a pro -- they'll normally give you the bios (which the mod chips don't come with: you have to hunt it down yourself on IRC and then burn it and install it -- dah!) and install some nice utilities etc on your HD.

    I got my chip from Whitedog, by the way, who were quite helpful when I got stuck and replaced the switch bit of the mod chip free-of-charge when my fat fingers snapped it.

    regards,
    anephric

    ...another vote for premodded - they're only a couple of miles from me and I cannot fault their service. They've chipped about 8 boxes for me and my mates all with no probs. Great selection of utilities uploaded to your box as well.

    To even things up once more, another vote for Baldbouncer ;)

    I've used them several times now and have received nothing bar exceptional service :)
