My problem ended up being an issue with the refresh rate on my 120hz TV syncing up with the different FPS of various movies. I had to check "sync display to movie" or something and then change each refresh rate setting in CCC. Worked perfect.

This looks great! Is it easy to setup the emulators with 360 controllers? Maybe post a guide in the HTPC forum on how to do this. I'd be interested.

Also, which movie db scraper are you guys using to tag your movies & tv shows?
Hi PeaceMaker - Yeah the PC 360 controllers work pretty much out of the box with all the popular emulators. I've setup 2 controllers for Nestopia, Snes9x, Fusion etc without much fuss. If you come across an emulator which doesnt work properly using Xpadder to map the appropriate buttons works very well also. I'm absolutely obsessed with Hyperspin though, brilliant frontend!

Attachment 200290

Zotac Ion board. Replaced the Heatsinks with some chipset heatsinks laying around for fun. Temps for cpu were 28, 25 - GPU / ion was 31. I didn't do a load test. I could for you guys if you'd like - any suggestion for loading it up without breaking it? Will prime95 break an ion / atom?

Sorry specs.

Some zotac atom ion board. atom 330 at 1.6 - Will try overclocking soon.
Hmedia chassis microatx.
LG bluray
some spare harddrive I had kicking around.
Windows 7
XBMC

Plays full 720 and 1080 like a champ.

Didn't at first - updated all drivers and installed the codecpack - k lite one. then good to go.

Also - in XBMC turned on hardware video acceleration.

Been great so far - now I want a 1080 tv as opposed to 720 for crisper text!

on a 50" plasma panasonic.

Streams movies and music from a 4TB media server in the adjacent room. Subtle, silent, and efficient. Tied to a 46in full-array Samsung LED TV, Pioneer receiver, and Polk+Klipsch soundstage.
