Just got inot the XBox world a coupole weeks ago, and have finally gotten around to getting the XBMC installed and operating fully.. I don't intend to let it sit for too long as is though..
..I wanted this for a cheap and easy networked media center.. I want to pull my iTunes songs, share music, movies, pictures, etc. across my network.. As such, I am having it be a part of my Home Theatre setup..
I am going to put it into it's own case designed to blend in with the rest of my HT setup.. I already have a component cable w/ the Optical Out (HUGE for when I pull my iTunes list off my PC; I want DTS!!)
A very quick question I have after trying a search of the forums is regarding the DVD drive in these things.. I KNOW they are very finicky about what you use, but I would like to know if a slot loading DVD drive is possible in any way.. I know I have the crappiest rendition of the Xbox DVD drive, so I know I want to change it.. And a slot loading unit would just help me achieve the overall effect I am going for..
As far as the system itself sits, it is running like a champ, booting to XBMC, and is on the Stars screen saver.. Just waiting for me to use it to its full potential..
So my questions I have thus far:
Slot loading DVD- Is this a possibility?
TiVo like TV recording- Is this possible?
THanks guys, and I like the place already!
