OK, how about the $200 Popcorn Hour boxes then? They are low power. Lower
than most SD frontend computers. They don't play all that well with Myth
right now, no commercial skipping, but there is work being done on that.

other power saving tricks. Or one could just turn it off, though you would
have to wait for it to boot.
