Using XBMC with your HDTV

2nd - What is XBMC?

For those of you who don't already know (from wikipedia):

Xbox Media Center (XBMC) is a free feature-rich open source media player / jukebox for the Xbox™ game-console - XBMC software program which plays video, music and displays pictures/images from the Xbox DVD-ROM drive, built-in harddisk drive, local-area-network or the Internet.

Simply put, if you're looking for a HTPC (Home Theater Personal Computer) that can play pretty much anything you can throw at it (including any video/audio file format on DVD, CD, or even on a network share) then why spend hundreds of dollars on building a HTPC? All you have to do is drop $100 on a used Xbox from eBay, do a softmod, and you're up and running in no time!

The purpose of this page is not to educate people on how to mod an Xbox, since there is an abundance of material on the net already covering this. However, if you're interested, please feel free to check out the following links:

  • A little off topic, Guys... I have a question. Two days ago I saw this site:
    [url=http://www.rivalspot.com]Rivalspot.com - Wii Live Tournaments[/url]
    They say you can play online FIFA Soccer game tournaments on any console for cash... had anyone tried that before? Looks like a cool idea...
    Are there any other sites where you can play sports games for real moneys? I Googled and found only Bringit.com and Worldgaming.com but it looks these guys don't specialize in sport gamez. Any suggestions?

  • I truly believe that we have reached the point where technology has become one with our lives, and I am fairly confident when I say that we have passed the point of no return in our relationship with technology.

    I don't mean this in a bad way, of course! Societal concerns aside... I just hope that as technology further innovates, the possibility of downloading our brains onto a digital medium becomes a true reality. It's one of the things I really wish I could see in my lifetime.
