I've successfully got XBMC running as my dash but I would like to be able (in as short a process as possible) launch progscandvd.xbe (that's my patched xboxdash.xbe that I use for region free, progressive scan DVD watching).

Is this possible with XBMC?

I usd to have it on the main EvolutionX menu for a quick launch.

Just launch it from "my programs" or "my files".

If you cant find it in my programs click scan, if you then get too many shortcuts delete them from the shortcut folder (either through ftp or in my files)

I would love to know this too. Scan isnt always an option. Just like the bookmark function isnt it possible to link directly to an XBE by specifying it in the xml?

There is a 'Home' button in the top left of xbmc that will launch the .xbe specified in the <Dashboard> section of the xbmc config file.

easiest way is to go in the XboxMediaCenter.xml and under my programs just add a new <bookmark> tag. look at the surrounding tags for the format. This will permenatly add a option on the base lvl.

something like this maybe:

<name>Pscan dash</name>

Why not just auto-launch it when a DVD is stuck in the drive?
