@socalracer: Your Revue tinkering sounds wonderful--that is, if I understand you correctly. Note that I am nowhere near as demanding as you: what I actually need is to stream my FLAC collection to my Android devices on the LAN or the Internet. This may have to involve some transcoding, which I am confident that the Revue can handle without hiccups. Please read below my questions in response to your posting.
It is possible to run a media server from the revue. I did it with the leak.
I take it you used the leaked Honeycomb, right?
I used a couple different ones to test things out.
Different what? Different Honeycomb leaks, or different media servers? At any rate, I'd be very curious what media server you've been using: Twonky? Subsonic?
Regarding my USB drive testing
Playing a 1min (size unknown) 1080.mp4 AAC file, it worked fine no skips from FAT32 usb drive 20GB partition
Playing a 90min 10GB 1080.mp4 AAC file, the Logitech Player wouldn't play it, but the Avia Player tried but it skipped horribly
Both work now flawlessly.
Dunno what "Leak" and "UserDebug" mean. Care to explain? Leaked Honeycomb vs. your tweaked Honeycomb?
