    Yep love the Pi but doesn't have on-board wifi... Ive a stash of dongles... Not a deal breaker... The GPU looks decent but 700MHz is > Xbox 1... and 256MB ram non-upgrade-able On the plus I don't see it overheating... and I can buy or build a custom case. Since it is built for linux *hallelujah* community dev!

    Just an update...

    Heres what we got.

    PlayOn doesnt play well with our Roku... It sucked... Which is weird because I can stream Blu-ray using Plex from my laptop beautifully... So logically, I thought Roku would stream better than the Wii... I cant get shit to stream from Plex to Wii...

    So finally the other night I thought Id finally check out PlayOn on the Wii...

    Works perfectly!

    So for now we have Hulu(-) on the Wiis!!! Also Amazon Prime thru PlayOn on the Wiis. PlayOn has a lot of good media!

    The computer were using is pretty low end, esp for video. Id say marginal at best... Its just a AMD 2X core 1.65 GHz with 4GB RAM Windows 7 x64.

    So Ive not yet decided if I want to go full on HTMC... It would be cool to have all my movies cataloged on a server and have regular internet access on my TVs which would pretty much replace cable with a ton of options like recording. But for now Im pretty satisfied with our current setup + gotta save for the wedding...

    Several years ago I cut the cord and went to an outdoor TV antenna. I pick up around 26 digital channels local with 8 of those being HD. I use our Wii to funnel in Netflix. We have more than enough good stuff to watch. It replaced our cable and we have never regretted it. Fact is we are more satisfied than we have ever been and we are saving a bundle.

    I have thought about hooking up an old PC that I have to our HDTV just to funnel more content like the regular HULU, but we have more than enough to watch right now.
