I really want to hop on the CableCard bandwagon and ditch my Verizon-supplied DVR. Problem is, as far as I know, the only software that can view and record live TV of encrypted channels (using CableCards) is Windows Media Center, and I hate the Windows Media Center front end.
Is there anyway to use XBMC as a front-end to Windows Media Center? In other words, I don't care if behind the scenes to make it work XBMC uses Windows Media Center to get guide info and schedule recordings and watch live tv. As long as I don't see Windows Media Center, I'm happy. I just want it to appear as if I'm using XBMC to watch live tv and schedule recordings. How they accomplish it doesn't matter to me.
Are there any plug-ins to XBMC that do this?
