And for the first time, i looked it up on Boards tonight, and realised this isn't posted anywhere (By using search function) on boards.ie..
A bit shocked, as i think this is one of the best TV boxes available, especially for this price.
The links in the description get you started, Definitely based on the Raspberry Pi.
Of course, the Mele A1000 costs twice what the newly shipped Raspberry Pi Model B does.
Still, with that extra money you get a case along with a faster processor--the Raspberry Pi sports an ARM1176JZFS running at 700MHz--
More RAM, and more audio and video connection possibilities.
