Anyone have a recommendation for a 10ft UI for a windows xp system? Preferably a free one, but any suggestions will do. I don't need video recording or ripping or anything extra really than the 10 ft UI. I've got all the blu rays I want to watch on the system and just need some kind of UI where I can see whats listed in the folders without having to be 5 ft from the TV. The ability to browse movies by thumbnail cover art (manual or automatic) is better yet.


I'd prefer something that didn't jack my codecs. Took a while to get everything working honkeydorky (codec wise) and I'd prefer not to go back to a BSOD when running a mkv.


Thanks a bunch

 XBMC . Best interface available at any price, and it's free. Codecs are a non-issue, as XBMC has all it's codecs and filters built-in. It also has scrapers built-in, so it will automatically grab posters and metadata for all your movies without any additional effort on your part.

Thanks a bunch. That was actually what i settled on while researching last night. Would you happen to know if xbmc supports DXVA? video card has the acceleration built in so i might as well make us of it.
