Possibly but you know what you are talking aboout.

Sounds like your setup is very concise, yet complicated with all the bells and whistles for 24/7 entertainment at your fingertips.


700+ movies, 5800+ TV episodes all accessible from pretty much anywhere in the house, now that's entertainment on demand! Foxtel can lick my balls :mrgreen:

Installed XBMC on my Boxee Box last night.
I've go to say, for an early alpha program it works pretty well.

Installation was a breeze too. I waited until the devs had set it up to auto boot on start instead of telnetting in and then gave it a go.

Watched Elysium and Strike Back via XBMC last night on the Boxee. Strike Bach was encoded in H.264 and worked well.
Elysium was in Xvid format and was watchable, but a bit juddery.
Early days yet though. Can only get better.
I hope the developers stick with it as the Boxee Box is a great cheap platform for XBMC now that you can pick them up 2nd hand for $100 or so.

Hell yeah! My DLNA server is network accessible by all PC's, my smart TV, the WD box on the other TV, the PS3 in the family room, and even wireless via the ipad sitting on the end of the bath :D :D

No idea on no's but I have about 10TB of stuff lol

Good to see they're doing XBMC for the Boxee!

I've found with the Windows version the capabilities of your TV add to the whole experience such as whether it can do 24p (120Hz) so you get silky smooth playback on all formats.

Frosty - we should talk :D
