    I must admit to being tempted by their new Ultra with built in XMBC!

    You'd probably be better off with a Pulse Box, from what I heard the xtreamer Ultra was not well supported. Pulse Eight is actually run by XBMC team members, they put the work into a dedicated remote, HDMI-CEC support and custom image for XBMC. Or wait for the Rasberry Pi stuff to mature if after a very basic AppleTV like client.

    Sorry to hijack this a little but what's this Pulse Eight PulseBox business all about? I'm afraid the website doesnt really explain itself or its products so well. Are they Windows/Linux/Ubuntu based platforms?

    You'd have thought a whole number of companies would have realised by now that there are tens of thousands of consumers out there simply gagging for a small form factor 1080p machine with slick user interface and the ability to run Internet driven 'apps' for on demand services.

    Like a lot of potential buyers of this forum at the moment I'm just not seeing a clear winner that floats my boat.

    I hate to say it but I get the feeling windows based software/applications running on small Acer Revo style solutions are going to win the day.
