Good to know about the APU. I'm tossing up what I want to do for a case. One thought is to make an NES box since I might use it as an emulator anyway. But since that's been done a LOT, I've also considered building it in to an old Intellivision shell which allows for a lot more room to play. Final thought would be to build it in to a custom built R2. But you get the idea...

I like the remote, but my wife and I have iPhones. This is one of the reasons I've actually been considering the Boxee software, since I can download the Boxee remote.
There's nothing stopping you from grabbing a cheap paygo android phone for strictly in-home wifi connectivity. I've now got two smartphones one of which is strictly for in home wifi use as a remote and/or mp3 player, and the other will probably never see data other than over wifi.

edit: as far as HD playback goes... I'll have to do some research to come up with an appropriate file to test with. :)
