Over 6 months ago my interest in the Neuros was very high, Couldn't wait for its release. Finally after mush procrastination I went for the only other linux alternative, the PMA430. Little more pricier than the Neuros but at the end of the day I have had over 6 months use out of it. Its also been hacked and updated linux and boot is obtainable from herehttp://www.pointlisse.com/PMA430/
Quite an impressive little player. Very good codec support (ac3 only killer at the moment) and very wide range of software included auto installers over the net.
Have a look.
