I've been using a Syabus NMT for a while now, but have gotten fed up with both the user interface and the clunky process for building menus with YAMJ, etc.
A couple of years ago I set up a MythTV box and experimented with that, but ended up going with Windows MCE for TV. Now, I just want to replace my NMT with a Linux-based solution and would like some help.... I've searched/read as much as I can but find as many posts about "issues" with one of these solutions as I find answers.
My only "absolute" requirement is to be able to watch DVDs stored on a network share, with a "nice" interface (cover art, etc.) that is easy to use to select the movie to watch. So, cataloging and displaying the movies is the big question.
The choices I am aware of are:
3) XBMC for Linux
One answer is to just go ahead and install of these, but I was hoping that someone who has some experience with them would recommend a "first choice" to save me some time.
Thanks for your help!
