Revo and Streaming Advice


Standard Member
After a lot of thinking and chatting to friends who have a revo and being told it'll handle 1080p no problems I decided to order myself one. It arrived today and I've formatted it, installed Win 7 and XBMC, configured it all and it works a dream.

Just figured I'd sit down and watch a game of American Football via NFL Gamepass and the video is choppy..... checked my connection (30Mb from Virgin) so did a little digging. Turns out the Revo is pretty crap at Streaming unless those streams can use the GPU, I've checked the settings when the game is playing and Hardware Assist setting is enabled but still no good. So bad it's practically unwatchable which is a real kick in the teeth as that was one of the reasons I brought it! :(

Does anybody have any advice? I'm thinking I'm pretty much screwed as I've formatted it now and so can't return it to ebuyer :(
