What a REALLY bad idea... 360's are flakey enough h/w wise. why port a media player that might heat up the 360 (decoding) video when a cheap 1080p player is peanuts?.. Personally I dont want to stress my JTAG any more than I have to (i.e. just play games); and use my silent playon to play media files. I can replace the media player easily, how easy would it be to replace a JTAGd 360?.. decoding a 1080p mkv is no easy feat unless using a GPU to offload the work..
JTAGd 360s are irreplaceable..at worst, and costly at best.
I don't think you get the idea here. Of course there are tons of affordable media players out there, but this is a different issue. No one ever said a word about replacing your old one, or even competing with this sector of the entertainment industry. This development is just something that a lot of people have been waiting for. Since the sheer success of XBMC on the first xbox people have been waiting to be wooed by a media player when the 360 was first compromised and open for homebrew. We want a media player because it would give the xbox 360 the needed functionality it is lacking at the moment.
And to comment on your fear of breaking your xbox: If you would have done your homework, you would not even dare to compare mkv 1080 playback with the complexity of a modern game. Given the specs of this machine, playing 1080 mkv would not even make the 360 sweat.
My suggestion: Just think for a second before posting some nonsense about what constitutes great news for the majority of 360 JTAGGERs.
