Thanks watchy for the link. I am extremely impressed with it. I only tried 3 or 4 blu-rays but had no problem with the menus.
I installed over teamviewer. You have to hit Alt+Enter after you launch xbmc to enter windowed mode or else you just get a black screen.
I then installed the xbmc remote app on my iphone and used that to control everything. After the scraping was done (via teamviewer) the remote worked flawlessly displaying movies sorted by date with the year and score next to them including cover art etc.
Hit play and away it goes, can select subtitles, etc. but the button layout is clumsy.
I will see if I can make it select the right resolution..
In terms of scraping/ui this is about a 1000 years ahead of my crappy ntv550.
I did not test hd audio as I was not using the onboard audio (my standalone graphics doesn't support it).
I also tested Blu-ray 1:1 folder rips, no dvds, etc.
If anyone has any questions let me know or better yet install it yourself, doesn't take more than a couple of minutes to have it up and running.
I am retyping the link by watchy:http://wiki.xbmc.org/index.php?title=Development_builds
and this is what the remote app look like:http://wiki.xbmc.org/index.php?title=Official_XBMC_Remote/iOS
