Thanks. This app does supports multiple XBMC servers and switching between them. And altough I haven't tried with XBMC on XBOX's, I believe it should work as long as xbox has suport for JSON RPC API. I will try it tonight and will post the findings.

I tried on old XBOX and it seems my version didn't have JSON RPC so it doesn't work. If there is enough interest, I will probably add support for HTTP-Api as well. Let me know if you absolutely need it.
BTW, look forward for the next update. Its major.....

Just FYI. There is another XBMC Remote which is not this one on marketplace. Please be advised to pick the one from "ashtech software" when looking for XBMC Remote from this thread.

Looks really nice hello_man. I'm very interested in win phone 7. Just waiting a little bit longer for it to prove itself. If I get one I'll definitely be picking this up!
Working well - 2 issues - blakjak3000 - 2010-11-17 13:57
I just made the shift to XMBC last night from an xbox 360 media centre....all I can say is OMG (i used XBMC years ago on my old old xbox but had no idea it would come this far).....Its truely awesome, and does what you need from a media centre....
I am using a Win7 HTC Mozart and the app works well and connects, and populates pretty quickly. However in the TV shows hub it will only let me scroll down to 7 or 8 of the tiles and wont let me scroll any further. If I try really hard I can just get the 9th tile to appear, but bounces back up
Also the music doesnt seem to populate (its blank) - This (may) be down to my set up. I have Windows Project Vail beta refresh (the New beta Windows Home Server) with all the media on it, and upstairs (wired) an 8Gb Lenovo T61p running Windows 7 and XMBC Dharma beta 4.
I'm just in the process of building another one for the lounge
With things like BBC Iplayer in the UK it would be great to interact with add-ons, as currently the remote crashed when switching from iplayer to another TV Show....If it could display the same data as the available on demand stuff on the remote that would be useful, and finally a possible trackpad option?
But all in all a great app, and well designed and look forward to the next release

Thanks. It seem it could be related to your setup. What I have seen is that if you have not scanned your music directory, it does show up in your libraries. Make sure you right click on you music folder and say scan library or something like that in XBMC. Hope that will solve the issue.
Also, if you like the app, I hope you can reflect it in your review at marketplace.
Awesome! - ThinkingShip - 2010-11-19 15:49
So the XBMC Remote is the first app I've bought for my HTC HD7 and it's really amazing. The new features are great, especially the "movies by year"-sorting.
Just 2 little things that I don't like:
1. The icons on the start screen. This gradient in the background just doesn't match to the Metro UI of Windows Phone 7. I like the older ones more:
or this simple one from this app:
Icons of "Box Remote"
2. If I change the poster art in the tv series they didn't replace the ones in the cache.
Really, really great work! Thank you very much!
