    I have a Embest VSS at the moment, but I'll be getting a Beagleboard Rev C4 soon. Of course, it'll come with all cables and the jazz I need, and I have a Toshiba 26 inch TV to hook it up to.

    I'm looking to get either a Pandaboard or a Tegra2 next.

    So - hello everyone, from the sunny Blue Mountains!

    I can post, but don't appear to be able to upload an avatar! Same error...

    I've got a rev C BB, and plan on ordering a PandaBoard soon, to make my own media center - I've got a WD HD TV but the s/w is crap!

    We're getting a Panda soon too!

    But!
    As for you're BB RevC.
    You should not really need to upgrade to Panda to make a media center.
    Install Angstrom to SD or NAND (nand is far faster) and install XBMC from the repo's or package and run that from your applications menu (LXDE).

    Edit:
    If you're going to replace your RevC, why not add a kernel with overclocking modules, hack the ass out of your revC?
    OC: @1GHZ and mess with it!
    Add a small heat sink. I plan to!
    What I also want to do is change the NAND into Swap Space! Nice and fast!

    Mr Donk,
    There should be no reason you can not add an avatar. I just added one to your account. Just to test.
    Please change when you come online.

    It could be that the file size was too large?
    150x200 size and max 64kb filesize.

    Seems to be working now....

    And the reason for upgrading from the BB to the PB for a media center is to run upscaled output at 1080P.
    The DSP codecs TI provide for the OMAP3530 only go up to (if I remember correclty) 480p. The CPU struggles
    to do video decoding for anything higher, even OC'd.

    That sucks about the DSP drivers.
    I'm sure you can play 720P on your beagle.

    I plan on getting a PandaBoard when they come back into stock! I can't wait.

    What are you running on your board? Have you testing many systems?
    I've ran Android, Angstrom from SD and NAND and Ubuntu from SD.
