I'm switching to XBMC from Meedio, which I've used for about 18 months (using the HTPC for something else). I tried MP on a number of occasions and didn't like it. It used far more processor and ram than Meedio and didn't run nearly as smoothly as XBMC.
That said, I love being able to run XBMC on my PC just for development stuff. I've been able to tweak my settings and environment on my PC and will probably start writing a few scripts as a result. Thank you so much for making this possible.

great to have this. I tested a bit around...
But it would be great, if there where a possibility to show up the python debug console, even if a script hangs...
Maybe a option in the menubar:
->Console (shows up the python debug log in w32 style)
->Restart (restarts python engine)
This would help very much...

Have the program check if E:, F:, Z:, P:, Q: exists and if not subst them to the correct folders

found a fix for my problem copy a _imaging.pyd from a windows install of PIL.

Blittan: The code is in, but I found it unreliable. See IoSupport.cpp if you want to play with it (I just use WinExec to run subst)

not a C programmer, unfortunally..
but if you feel up to it, make it an option to enable/disable subst from the software?
