Which is the better? I'm not really impressed by the speed/stability of ATV2 running xbmc.

Also the ATV2 is unable to display 720 streams from starstreams (it all looks like slo mo).

Speed of OUYA is very fast compared to ATV2
Picture Quality I find better with the OUYA

WiFi is better with ATV 2
I like the ATV2 remote better than the big OUYA game controller

In its day the ATV2 was "The Device" to have to run XBMC (and are now way too expensive to buy second hand). Things have come a long way since then with many many different devices being available, which can handle streams (especially HD) better than the ATV2.
OUYA, Raspberry Pi are both options and will both play full 1080p HD with no problems whatsoever.

Thanks. That's clarifying.

My ATV2 is great for streaming from my computer and watching Netflix, but Star Streams only works if I run SD streams. Which is strange, because the HD streams are not even close to being real HD imo. It used to be so much better.

Another question: Did they sort out the initial wifi problems or are people still having issue with speed and staying connected?

I haven't had a wifi problem, but then again, my ouya is like 5 feet away from my router, modem.
