XBMC happy user on a old XBOX. Unfortunately does not play HD MKV.

Tried an O!play, but being used to work, fidle and enjoy XBMC, I got the feeling that the OPlay is only in the beginning, lacking most of the simple features offered by XBMC. Asus engineers/developers should take a closer look at xbmc, and if not possible to make it equal, at least should try to learn with one of the best stream software for a HTPC in the market...

Please comment.

Amen to that.. If it could be done, it would be great. But its already been tryed on other forums, but the internal "harddrive" on the O!Play is not big enough to be able to have the real XBMC installed..

But yes, Asus could learn ALOT from this great peace of sofeware..

I'm aslo a big XBMC fan. It Asus could at least add a similar "browse by cover art" and a basic scraper (= grab the imdb info or so) that would make the whole experience more enjoyable...

"Internal HDD" is not the problem if one can use an external hdd or usb pen to mount a partition, it has already been done, with some optware.

It is a problem, cause you cannot install optware if you do not have a tiny free memory in the player's flash memory. It has been done on firmware 1.17 and earlier by getting rid of the asian characters font file, but from 1.18 onwards there is no free memory and no file that can be deleted without causing problems.

XBMC can only run ot x86 systems.It`s been discussed with the developers of XBMC.Besides 400 mhz of CPU power aren`t enough.But dreaming of this colaboration one of the best multimedia players will be created!

If you have money to waste, yes. For everyone else I'd recommend xbmc live (or, better yet for people who only want xbmc and nothing else, openELEC.tv) on a neat ION based system.

I don't understand your response. XBMC is free. Unless you meant money wasted on Windows 7??? In which case I was merely commenting for the benefit of people using Windows 7 x64, that they can use XBMC, no problems. I was in no way suggesting that anyone should buy Windows 7 simply to run XBMC, which would be utterly ridiculous.
