Not sure if this is possible or even if its a feature i have missed that already available.

I plan to use XBMC as my dash (moving from Unleashx) however one thing i do not like is the fact there is no way of seperatign Games and Apps, is it possible to include this with this new skin?

Already done, as part of the 360 real dash we have split Games/Apps/Emulators all up into sepearte 'sections'.

Glad to hear this has been addressed

If we would only integrate dvd2xbox into xbmc, we wouldn't need the "applications" section rolleyes.gif

In regards to different sections, this is good news!

liv2ride, not having the "applications" tab is a thought, but about those who may run, for example, linux as an app, or for now, linksbox, or future homebrew apps? sad.gif And if i'm not mistaken, I don't recall the xbox being able to handle more than one app (process) at a time. I know it would be interesting to integrate DVD2Xbox with XBMC, but I honestly don't see how the xbox's capabilities would be able to handle such diverse and multiple tasks simultaneously, given the box's specs. Now one may state that xbox runs an interface that can copy music albums to the hard drive, but to my knowledge this is not of the same nature. Again, these hypothesis is based on what I've read thus far.

But we can always dream a wish! sleeping.gif

I use 'we' a lot too. It's one of the little quirky things that make up the english language, don't get too concerned about it.

And I don't think he was being too serious judging by the roll-eyes emoticon.
