Default Re: Building Another HTPC

but the weird thing is, it plays some movies perfectly.

for instance Godfather series, it plays all first and third fine. but second movie plays in slow motion.

and second movie is the longest, has lowest bitrate.

i had issues with bluetooth connectivity before, not totally convinced about that product. but for 150 bucks it should work perfectly, not sure why they went with bluetooth.
