Well I have a pretty sweet HTPC running XBMC and everyone that comes by LOVES the poster, info, fanart.....etc Especially my parents.It is a great way to experience a Home Theater. Anyone using XBMC knows how good just all the extra eye candy improves the whole experience.
My parents do not have internet and won't be getting it. They have no use for it really. I will however be loading the hard drive (3TB) with anything I have that they want and whatever new files I get.
So my question....I need an "inexpensive" way to give them that XBMC experience also. No HTPC and I don't want to build one either. It has to be simple and can be controlled via a remote control. Anything more involved than that just won't work.
Looking for a Set-Top box type setup. It will ONLY be used to watch files from a Local external drive. Most files are 720P and lower and any 1080p/Blu Ray content will be played directly from a Blu Ray player. Ideally....turn the unit on and it goes directly to XBMC and everything can be selected thru the remote control.
XBMC is certaintly not an absolute must but if there are other systems that give the same type of media interaction (posters, info, fanart) I am open to suggestions.
Thanks in Advance.
