Hi there

I'm considering the purchase of a xbox to use it has a media center to watch my normal and full hd movies.

Is the purchase of a XBOX 360 with the XBMC install better than a Popcorn Hour media center?

Will I be abble to read the same files on the XBOX360 has the ones with Popcorn Hour?

thanks

hi there

thanks for the website but the link you gave me only shows and describes the XBMC on the XBOX.

About conclusions I took on the research, help me out.

1 - I saw a thread mentioning that we can install xbmc on popcorn. Is this correct?
2 - If the above is correct, we're just installing a new firmware, right?
3 - If were installing a new firmware, the only thing that I need to check is if the hardware on the XBOX360 is better than one on Popcorn hour, right?

What I want is to buy a new media center to my home and since popcorn hour is a great media center (I think), but a little expensive, I was adviced to buy a xbox and instal xbmc.

That's why I asked if the a xbox360 with xbmc has the same or better performance and specs to view movies of all kinds has a popcorn hour.

thanks againd.

Also: There is no XBMC for the "Popcorn Hour".

I would recommend using an Acer Revo.

Need help? Check out my XBMC Frodo Guide. It contains full featured guides to Sickbeard and CouchPotato as well.

this kind of stuff always makes me nautious. They say in the link that the LINUX version of xbmc will not work on PS3/wii/xbox 360. That is a moot point since the damn xbox 360 doesn't have linux. I MAY be mistaken but the damn thing was originally written for oh I don't know XBOX media center, so is it not TOO crazy to wonder why it can not run in compatibility mode like so many other games on the xbox 360Confused??

The only thing that should make you "nautious" is the lack of research you did, no need to bring that attitude here

Oh, XBMC4XBOX will run on an XBOX360. It's just really impractical, and the main XBMC group stopped supporting that version years ago.

You can make easy links to the XBMC wiki using double brackets around common XBMC words: [[debug log]] = debug log, [[Video library]] = Video library, [[SMB]] = SMB , [[userdata]] = userdata, etc
