You can add a wifi USB dongle - I haven't tried navi-x so not sure about that -

This is the Raspberry Pi, its a small Linux board for ?25

if you were to get one that has wifi or can support it and handles the likes of navi-x for crisp playback what would you suggest. i have used appletv 2 and that runs smooth wondering what would be a comparable choice if you couldn't get an appletv 2?

thanks

I use a Pivos Xios (which has a custom linux build of xbmc) that is actively supported by the XBMC team itself.

Detection, the Raspberry Pi board you speak of can you get one fully loaded already to go in a case or must you program it and all.

You must put raspbian or xbian (I recommend raspbian, just my 2c) onto an SD card.

You can order a raspberry pi + case + SD card + wifi together...

The Pi comes without an OS, but creating one is very easy, just download the OS you want, use DiskImager to copy it to the SDCard and then put the SDCard in the Pi and turn it on, done :)

This is the best XBMC for the Pi, I use it to watch a film most nights on my Pi

And other OS's too
