Thanks  for the reply, I think this should not be an issue as I'm mostly using it on 
recorded mpeg2 files from DVB ie recorded TV shows plus some ripped DVB avi files.

This certainly seems the cheapest even if its not the most optimal platform anyone know of 
any other barebones platforms around the $100-$200 mark?
