XBMC Device Shuffle

Posted: October 8, 2013 in Hardware, Home Media

I’m conflicted over the XBMC player we use in the lounge. Wolf is a small atom based device, low power, a bit noisy with small (~40mm) fans, but capable of playing everything we throw at it. Freya is the most powerful box in the house that due to a) OpenELEC update pain b) laziness c) Live TV hopes ended up in the Antec HTPC case running XBMCbuntu. I don’t need Freya (live TV now handled by my VU player)…. but having a machine that powerful doing nothing offends me 😀

Guess I’ll rebuild it and use it as a desktop….. oh joy Win 7 install from scratch… see you next year.
