Yeah, I believe there's an option in XBMC to disable extensions. I'm also in File view when the extensions are shown. If I was in Title view, it would show just the title (seen in some of the screenshots). My only issue with the Title view, is that it's based off of IMDB's title, and I have a lot of foreign movies, many of which show up as their foreign name as opposed to their english translated name.

Would it be possible to get an Xbox up and running to support both XBMC and XMAME?
I wish I had the time to set it up and get it going. I'll have to look into local shops that will do the mods for me.
What do you use to control the system? Is there a standard XBOX Remote?
Lastly, does the XBMC upscale DVD's to HD resolutoins? I've read that it does.
I'm using the Infocus 4805 16:9 projector. XBMC does support widescreen resolutions as you can see in the screenshots. It supports 480p, 720p, and 1080i as well as 4:3. Before I load up XBMC, the xbox loads the dashboard where I can access MAME. MAME can also be accessed via XBMC with some tweaking.
XBMC can be controlled by the xbox controller, the xbox dvd remote, and the xbox media center extender remote (which uses the same IR codes as the xbox dvd remote). The xbox dvd remote MSRP is $30 and I found the xbox media center remote online for around $30 so I got that remote and learned the commands onto my Osiris MX-350 and it works great.
XBMC does upscale DVD.
Please do if you don't mind.
I'll clean up my app a little bit and make it a little more user friendly, then I'll share it when it is ready.
