I am curious how many people are using the modded xbox to not just play backup games, but use them as media centers throughout their homes. If so, what is your setup like?

Also, do you run more than 1? I just picked up a second for the bedroom this week. Very ideal device if you running a audio/video server in house.

I use the Xbox as standard DVD player, play games, play retro games on Emulators (That's what I do the most), I use it to watch .avi and other video files.

Partially.
Connected through an old Prologic surround amp, used as a DVD player, sometimes CD player (XBMP), and for showing friends home avi and movs through XBMP.
Sometimes I think it could take over everything completely, but the quality cannot match really good hifi IMHO. Maybe the next version... wink.gif

I use one xbox that has a non working dvd drive as my media box.. I put all types of music and tv shows on there .. maybe some other stuff too, but can't say.

The other box I have is for games only, all types of games.

Ever since I modded mine, it's been used mostly for watching movies and whatnot. It's also my only DVD player. I've got emulators but haven't really used them since I first got it modded. Once the day comes I buy a new computer, I'm going to use my Vaio as a movie server for it so I don't have to clutter up my new computer with everything.

What I really want to see for Halo2 myself would be the ability to hook up one Xbox per person playing multiplayer. I hate sharing a small screen. Especially with a screenwatcher. grr.gif

How about the game just being released I can careless what halo 2 is as long as it is the SAME as halo or better. I can careless if its the exact same game as long as its on live it will sell MAD wink.gif
