Hello, who has one? Might of been a thread a while ago but cannot find it.

I have one connected to my amp/TV running XMBC and its superb.....!

I have 4OD, Iplayer plus soundcloud on mine with loads of movies on a hard drive of course.

Anybody have any problems etc at all or good programs to run on it?

Got one running Raspbmc and haven't had any major problems with it. Recently it's developed a random (it might be heat but yet to test that theory) reboot issue that occurs once in a blue moon but i suspect it's because i run nightly-builds.

Navi-X plugin, which is essentially a load of streams for (dodge) TV channels, might be worth looking in to - although i've found some of the streams to be a bit hit or miss in terms of working.

Got one with Raspbian installed. Using XRF modules with it to record temperature around the house and report it via a web site. Got an LCD display on it to output temps too. Hoping to get the Camera streaming off it soon

Tempted to get one. Got a full-blown PC downstairs that rarely gets used, and only ever gets used for streaming off my HTPC upstairs.

Got one running raspbmc and the navi x plug in,

No hassle streaming films etc, used it that much when I moved out I didn't even bother with sky etc

Even take it with me when I'm traveling with work as most hotels have a half decent Internet connection and a tv I can connect it too (Hdmi)

Right having issues with mine.... reinstalled raspbmc with no luck.... the resolution keeps going all weird and turning off. Worked ok previously but now messed up?

Do you think its faulty?

Shame cos I wanted the footy streams

Have you tried a different TV/Monitor? Similarly, try using the composite output and see if you get a stable picture via that.

I'd also test Raspbmc with a different SD, too rule out dodgy SD card; try a different PSU and i'd try OpenElec or Raspbian just to make sure it isn't Raspbmc doing something funky.

Also, is it getting hot?
I've notice when we had the hot weather a few weeks back mine starting sticking random green specks on the video output; been fine since i've changed the mounting position on the telly and the weather has got cooler though.
