I'm not sure if I should have posted this here or in the DVD drive section.
I have a HTPC(really just a desktop) connected to my AVR790 and 55 lm6200. The front of the PC is full of lights and pretty ugly amongst the rest of my components. What I want to do is put the computer behind and use the 360's HD DVD drive as the DVD player. I got it working with Media player within windows 8 pro. But XBMC doesnt recognize a disc being inserted. Wether it be HD disc or regular DVD. But it works in file mode, which is no solution for the wife to use
I have now got XBMC to recognise the HD DVD player. I turns out I had to disable the internal drive, not that I am using it anyways. Re arranging the drive letters within windows would fix the problem too.
Now, I am still struggling to get HD DVD's to play. XBMC Frodo pukes at the attempt LOL. I know PowerDVD 7.3 plays them, but it's long gone.
