In truth, there is nothing "wrong" with the way my Revo 1600 plays video. XBMC in Windows XP does the trick and the 4Gb of ram helps. But I am wondering if I should be looking at another HTPC system that can:
a) support Sata3 and allow me to use my 3tb internal hdd
b) allow me to run Windows 7 with XBMC without any video problems
c) allow me to run Air Video server and stream videos quickly to my iPad and iPhone
d) has HDMI output for my HDTV
e) is quiet and power efficient (running it practically 24/7), and is also used for downloading

Any suggestions? Should I keep using my old Revo 1600 or go with something a bit better for my needs? The extra storage an ability to stream Air Video server quickly and smoothly would be nice.

Thanks!
