I wanted RPi for HTPC use, but it is too early stage of development of PRi at all.
No official case, no utilization of GPU for GUI elements, no remote control …
At this moment It is better to buy Apple TV1 + Broadcom(BCM970015), which is under $100, and I already did. OpenELEC is great for this hardware configuration.
So, I intend to decline my order in Farnell, and I''ll might make someone happy with that . My estimated delivery date is in the mid May (it was 16 April, but … you know – manufacturing hiccup).
PS: Nevertheless, may be I will buy RPi in the near future.
