I do think it's a good BASE. AC Ryan is releasing a HUGE firmware and GUI redesign in December, so I'll probably even write up a bit of a 1-pager on the improvements. I'm looking forward to that, as this has a LOT of potential.
As it stands now, though, caveat emptor - I much prefer an authentic HTPC with the much nicer "ElementHTPC" linux distribution running it. It's easy, clean and works with just about everything you throw at it (including 1080p), on an NVidia ION board. If I'm gonna spend $150 for something that kinda sorta works, I'd rather spend $250 and make it work WELL.
