Looks like the XS is shipping, and with tofu as promised.

Thought it was supposed to be quad core?

Nope, just dual, the quad would be the mid-box down the road.

Will the box boot directly into TOFU or will it boot into android and you have to select TOFU app?

Yup, boots directly into TOFU (TOFU is now the launcher).

I was thinking of buying a xs box. Since the xs forum is locked i guess I will ask here.

Can it be reported the box plays 1080 avc content with dts and a wide variety of bit rates flawlessly?

Does tofu use the official android remote? I hide my box behind my TV, so ir remotes are useless

Does tofu run official xbmc plug ins?

I want to run Netflix, Will this be supported natively out of the box?

Will there still be the option to run 3rd party Linux builds if I don't like tofu?

The xs is on sale at my retailer so would like to make a decision before the sale ends, thanks!

Its open now

"wide" is vague term, PM me a certain sample and I will report back.

You mean official XBMC android remote ? should be .. didn't verify it .. will verify and report back.
Does tofu run official xbmc plug ins?

As long as official means "Gotham".
I want to run Netflix, Will this be supported natively out of the box?

Netflix (latest on the Appstore, as of now) works fine on the box (quality is HQ, so DVD, not HD).
Will there still be the option to run 3rd party Linux builds if I don't like tofu?

As of now, Pivos has no plans for maintaining a linux branch for the XS, but that shouldn't prevent 3rd party of doing so if they feel like it.

pre-order price would be extended for one more week,

Thanks for the reply, I am going to purchase the XS with extended warranty. Thankfully my retailer allowed me to purchase warranty after the fact on the DS, so I can return it if the issues I got aren't resolved and trade up for a XS unit (my retailer is great peoples!).

Hopefully the XBMC android remote is functional, the rest I can toy with.

Have a great day!
