I guess that would work, it runs off CD though, what would i have to do to get it onto HDD? Create a mini partition and copy bootable image to that? Could work...

Vista MC has really pissed me off lately. Whenever I play AVIs (TV shows or movies from BT), it will play extremely choppy and then VMC crashes. WTF?! I'm looking now to see how to get the WMC remote control to work with XBMC. MS is really pissing me off as of lately.

VMC will crash on if i use Divx or Xvid for decoding AVI files that are encoded with either Divx or Xvid.

If i set those codecs to use FFDShow instead, it will not crash

So I switched from VMC to XBMC, downloaded some software to get my Media Center remote working and it works really, really good. I can actually fast forward through AVIs now! And, it doesn't crash with my AVIs!

XBMC is really awesome. For the short time I got to start converting things from VMC to XBMC this weekend, everything went smoothly and everything plays smoothly. Suck on that M$, maybe you need to learn a little something from open source.

Well I have to say thanks a million nekro. XBMC rocks my world. It's soooo much better than MS Media Center.

I love how if I tell it a folder has TV Shows in it, it automatically catalogues them all and downloads pictures and episode info. Same deal for movies.

And when you can explicitly tell it to look for media is specific folder and it does it right. Not like crap media center's way....that always adds other folders and crap.

This program rocks!!

haha, holly ****, speaking of getting better

BETA 2 of Atlantis build has been released few minutes ago

Quote:
XBMC 'Atlantis' Beta 2 release

Team-XBMC is proud to announce the second cross-platform Beta version of XBMC Media Center for Linux, Mac OS X (Leopard, Tiger, and Apple TV), Windows, and Xbox, in preparation for the upcoming point release of XBMC, code named 'Atlantis'.

New in this release is multi-core video decoding for Windows users, courtesy of a rebuilt FFmpeg by WiSo and AreaScout, and XBMC now runs on the Apple TV via the easy to use USB installer created by Scott Davilla. We've also updated the skins (PM3.HD, Project Mayhem III, and MediaStream by Team Razorfish) to their latest versions.

With almost 80 tickets closed, and close to 200 commits to SVN since Beta 1 was released, Beta 2 represents a clear step forward in terms of stability. Thanks to all in the community who have made this possible by reporting bugs and suggesting improvements!

Go grab XBMC 'Atlantis' Beta 2 and let us know how it goes!

Nice one.

I think I'll setup an XP machine as my media center, cut out all the fat and set. XBMC to boot on startup. Best way to take advantage of the multi core decoding I think. ::

If you guys wanna see, I'm working with a few "skinners" on XBMC's forums on creating a new skin. Check out my mockup:

Let me know what you think.
