    What skins ?

    Cheers, can you get the "standard" front menu ? I just like mine to have everything on one "page" as such, thus using least amount of remote presses etc to get from one place to other Will have a look at Cirus Does that allow custom menus (I only want Movies, TV and Settings) and for those to...

    Intel nuc dn2820 help please

    0 cache does not actually speed up streaming as such it does not make slow broadband speeds faster, what it does do though is cache the data to the storage of the device you are using and 0 basically sets the buffer its used as "unlimited" There are various schools of thoughts about this -...

    Intel NUC my impressions, comming from RPI, ouya and ATV520

    I'm afaraid I don't know what is good for $ prices as in uk Most of that stuff in link looks overkill All you need is a pi board (you don't even need a case but it's best) an sd card, a USB stick, a remote ( mind you can use cec if tv supports it and not even need this) and a hdmi cable You...

    Intel NUC my impressions, comming from RPI, ouya and ATV520

    Not just the cheapest (well to be honest it'd probably no longer the cheapest) but the best value would be the raspberry pi It's perfectly capable and when tweaked and clocked runs fine, although after awhile you may find that you long for something better / faster At that point consider a nuc...

    OC problems with Gotham

    outside of force turbo=1 and settings for arm_freq core_freq and sdram_freq I would not bother with any other settings, at least initially, just go with the basic 3 plus force turbo being 1 then slowly increase

    Must I purchase a codec license?

    If you have files that need the codec, then yes you must purchase However in my experience if the codec is required and you don't have it already, the files play, but with audio only It's only a couple of quid and after all the developers have done, my view is purchase and support

    what is everyone using for speakers, audio Output?

    Not sure what current exchange rates are but you could get a good soundbar for that budget Some lovely ones out there. As much as I would always, always suggest go for sound quality first, with a sound bar you do at least want something that matches your display Also make sure you have one...
