I can't remember if it was you who said that Torrents would never work with the Mede8er but the X2 now has torrent support.
It's easy to add the function. It's when users expect the box to play anything and everything they download, as happens with a PC, that problems arise. If that's what your expecting then, no Torrent is not supported even with X2. Those who plan ahead will continue to download using a PC as it's quicker and easier to fix problems that way. Do you really want to copy a 15GB MKV downloaded onto the med using torrent to a PC at 8.5 mb/s, fix it to play, and then copy it back? Just becuase a function is in the X2 dosn't mean the X2 will do that function as well a device optimised for it, be it NAS, or PC. Over expectation is the quickest route to dissapointment.
The Med has always been about giving users "options". The 500x has three differnt ways of playing files over a network, when they could have just implented one. So the X2 has a whole load of new "options" which some may find useful, others not. What are useful, and what are not, will vary from user to user.
