Hi Andrew,

While I have yet to work with the SitePlayer from Netmedia, their Basic X 
family of rapid development microcontrollers are great!

I been working with BX-24P and other models and they are fast and 
powerful.  You get real-time multi-tasking OS, 32 floating point math, 32k 
of EEPROM (8000+ lines of code) and 400 bytes of ram.
