I'm still a noob when it comes to HTPC but I have been doing a lot of research lately. I am currently using a Boxee Box and their list of apps is pretty good and I believe they do have an ESPN 3 app. They also have some apps that I could not find for XBMC which might just be a case of me not finding the right repository. However, Since I have the majority of the apps I need linked to my Boxee account, I plan on running WMC as basically the home page when I get my HTPC set up. I will have it default to Live TV so that when I turn it on it goes to the last channel I was watching like if I turned on my DirecTV box.
I found some files that will allow you to integrate programs into the Windows Media Center main screen. What I plan to do is integrate Boxee, XBMC, and Hulu Desktop into WMC which already has Netflix integration. This way I can switch between all of the programs based on whether I want to watch the various apps or plugins XBMC and Boxee offer, stream Netflix or Hulu, watch live or recorded TV, or watch my collection of local media. I hope that offers some help but I'm sure some of the seasoned vets here will have a better solution.
Just because I don't care, doesn't mean I don't understand.
