I finally got xbmc installed. The replaytv support is impressive! I'm also impressed by the whole xbox media center. I now have a networkable DVD player, divx player, replaytv client, photo viewer, mp3 player, weather viewer, ... BTW, I heard you can play games with these things too.
Thanks to all involved!
I think when the 23rd century history of the early 21th century is published its going to mention that the biggest impact of the entertainment industry's blantent attempt to force DMR management on anything that can recieve a video signal was to turn ordinary citizens into hackers.
It probably will also compare this eras absession with simulation vs. reality to that of the dark ages. (we spend more time and money as a culture on simulated events (tv , movies) than we do on real aka. Moon / Mars missions. It probably will have some nasty things to say about how the effort was seeded by campaign contributions to members of congress.
(hey just an opinion, but remember within the next few decades the majority of politicians are going to be from the mp3 generation).
OK , where I'm I going, It was more of a pain to find all the pieces to get this working than it should of been.
However not only can I see my replays, but by feeding the stream back into my pc and beyond tv3 I'm also able to stream to my pocket pc in wmv format, and control xbmc with its web interface.
