DaBeach Posted June 16, 2011 Share Posted June 16, 2011 (edited) I am working on building a media center PC and I am currently reviewing software for it such as: XMBC, MS Media Center & Boxee. Although I do like XMBC it does not seem to be supported very well and allot of the plugins just don't work. MS Media Center does not seem to do a very good job of indexing Audio with pictures very well and the live TV is a feature I would like however, it does not seem that I can eliminate CLIPS of shows and only show FULL shows. Boxee if I am correct is built on XBMC and sometimes crashes. What I am looking to do is have hopefully a single piece of software that would index my local Audio/Video and show related CD or DVD cover pictures, be able to see podcasts live and archived and also have the ability to show regular big media shows on the networks. Additionally I am hoping to also have Netflix and Hulu+ built in. One other thing I would like is if the application does not have a plugin or application for a media source I would like I need a way to add it in. Does anyone have suggestions on how to build a system that could do all that with one software application vs. jumping from MS Media Center for Netflix, Hulu Desktop and then XBMC. Is there a best of all worlds? I am not concerned if it is MS or Linux based. Edited June 16, 2011 by DaBeach Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
