Anyone have any experience with using a Rasberry Pi for XBMC or other home media related software? I ordered one last night with the intent of installing a discrete home media server behind my TV, however I did run into some issues using Netflix/Hulu along with it. I'm not necessarily concerned with the ability to use netflix or hulu (and did find a solution last night, that I can't seem to find this morning), but we're trying to find a solution other than using a Apple TV due to the cost associated with Apple TV, and Apple TV 2.
Update: I got my rasberry Pi in today, after 3-4 hours of troubleshooting, I finally got it to stream movies off my external as well as a buddies internal. If anyone has any interest in performance or installation, let me know. We've only run into issues with playing oversized movies so far. The avengers in 1080p with a 16GB .mkv file has a little stutter. However, other files of same quality but smaller file size has no issues. Then again he's using a 5400 RPM green drive, with a 8mb buffer, the stutters may be the drives fault and not the rasberry Pi'.s
We're using Raspbmc fyi.
