small fanless nettop media box: hardware options?
I am looking to buy a small, silent device to use as a media box plugged into my tv with either mythtv or xbmc, and have not had too much luck googling around so far (maybe I am using the wrong terminology..) so I would welcome some pointers
- fairly small
- silent: no fans or spinning disks
- HDMI output to my TV
- hardware well supported under linux
- built-in IR receiver and remote would be nice!
- 128GB internal ssd storage would be my ideal, but micro-SD slot or USB port for storage would also be ok.
In addition to watching video, I plan to plug in my webcam and do video calling: skype would be great, though that requires an x86/x86_64 architecture it seems so it limits the options even more.
Any suggestions are appreciated (up to an included "post this on forum XYZ, not here")
