Xbmc Vs Wii Channels
Posted 22 September 2006 - 01:07 PM
Starting Screen vs Home screen.
Starting Screen on Wii is grid 3*4 icons with status bar on bottom. According to Wii Webpage icon order can be changed and new channels could be added. Probably more comfortable than PMII home screen or MC360 blades.
Nothing intresting was disclosed about this Channel.
This is unique feature of Wii. There is nothing to compare in xbmc, nothing to miss either.
Forecast Channel vs. Weather
Forecast channel features very impresive Earth model for displaying weather, but 3 cities from XBMC is just enought for me.
Photo Channel vs My Pictures
There are only two feartures of Photo Channel not in XBMC: photo editing and sending photos to other consoles, and "to communicate with family members".
News Channel vs Rss Feeds
Wii has news reeder with 3 zoom levels. Xbmc has only scrolling rss headlines, and no good news/rss reader integrated in any popular skin.
Wii has Opera! No comparable equivalent on xbmc. Yes, Linksboks is hardly comparable. There is no chances for compiling any closed source browser (Opera and IE) on xbox. Any chances for open source?
Nothing intresting was disclosed about this Channel, besides partial list of games. Emualtor shortcuts in xbmc are functional and not very comfortable, but Emulauncher script looks very promising.
Wii Shop Channel
Nothing intresting was disclosed about this Channel, besides pricing model for Virtual Console. Various scripts for dowloading contents for XBMC are done or in development.
PS. I DO NOT want to start any flame wars. This is NOT Xbox vs Wii, Nintendo vs Microsoft vs Xbox homebrew developers! I don't even mention the four-letter "S"-word.

hmm.....thanks for the info, rafal100. maybe eventually people can collaborate to make Wii skin for xbmc.
can u post any pics, rafal100?
I'm afraid, no. There are 5 movies showing Wii channels "in action" on official US Wii webpage (official US Wii webpage - Movies show japanese version of intergace). The UK version (link in first post) has better descriptions of channels, but no movies.
Wii skin for xbmc? Interesting idea. I was thinking rather about improvements to existing skins.

here's some pretty cool wii icons too (http://www.deviantar...ation/41980387/) that whoever is working on this skin might want to contact.

Also the glovepie scripts for windows (and I think maybe linux) have been released. I wonder how hard it would be to make a bluetooth adapter and glovepie work on XBMC would be. If you could do that then wiimotes would be able to be used on an xbox.
