Nice to hear you are back up and running. If you need any testing on HDTV or general usage im more then happy to help.
I do my own builds.

Just a quick update... things are advancing!
Tonight I realized that the TrueType font rendering wasn't working anymore, due the the switch from XFONT to freetype on revision 6597 of last October 25th
So I eventually got it working again, now Links uses freetype too for font rendering :cool2:... which eventually improved the overall font quality for TV viewing imo, especially on italics; I'm cheating though: I uploaded arialbd.ttf, ariali.ttf and arialbi.ttf from my Windows instead of letting freetype "enbolden" and "oblique" the glyphs itself!
To see if there was a memory usage issue, I did a quick bench - this is a Debug build running in the XDK through VS, I have about 22MB left when I arrive on home screen:
-freetype rendering w/ 4 arial fonts loaded
-builtin rendering w/o any TTF fonts loaded
so there *is* some impact on memory but less than I expected...

Amazing diffrence. Great work ysbox. The italic text was a bit hard to read before but now

Quote:The xbmc with web browser could be the final evolution of tv-computer integration. I believe that a web browser and aim capability would put the xbmc directly into the living room and make it the "pc-tower" of the Television. It is the future, might as well embrace it. I agree size is an issue.
just read that on xbmc.blogspot.com, truest thing ever!!!!!
keep up the good work man, cant wait for the day its released!!!!

what are the chances of this browser including flash and java script?
- timdog82001 - 2007-02-08 09:06
i'm guessing its pretty small, at least on the flash script, since the standalone flash app hardly works as is. But then again, I don't really know anything, just basing it on what other apps have accomplished. Would be sweet if it could be done though
