There are in fact 3 media player distros for the Raspi: Xbian, OpenElec, and Raspbmc. I tried OpenElec, but it seems native myth:// support in XBMC is currently broken (cmyth throws a
"cmyth_rcv_old_int64: cmyth_rcv_u_long() failed" error). Since the error is in XBMC/cmyth I assume that Raspbmc and Xbian are broken too, but haven't had a chance to try them on my Pi yet.

I got my Raspi last Wednesday.
I have two SD cards for it, one with OpenElec and one with Raspbmc installed.

Using DLNA none of them could play HD H.264 recordings, just nothing happening. I have not got the license for MPEG2 yet, but when trying to play SD MPEG2 recordings both tried to get the recording, but then failed to play.

Using the native myth:// support did not work at all on Raspbmc but sort of on OpenElec. The problem is possibly that all my non-MPEG2 recordings are HD. One 1080i H.264 recording played well for about one minute, then just stopped. One 720p H.264 recording played with a slight pause about every seven seconds.
