Users / XBox 360 as a "frontend" (MD)
« on: March 25, 2007, 01:58:34 am »
I know that there are free linux media servers that the 360 can interface with and access the same way it can with the Windows Media Center, but will LinuxMCE be able to do that as well?

The problem (as far as I know, and from what I've learned playing with free media servers) with this feat is that the 360 will only accept the "wmv" codec (and perhaps "avi" but I can't remember).  Some media servers would transcode it to "wmv" on the fly before sending it and that (sorta) worked.  It was slow and laggy, but it worked.  Would LinuxMCE be able to do that?

Users / HDTV in LinuxPCE
« on: March 25, 2007, 01:16:00 am »
Would LinuxPCE be able to encode, decode and output high definition signals similar to MythTV with a few hacks and modifications?  It'd be cool to be able to output in 1080p to a HDTV.  I found a couple websites that show how to do it with MythTV but I'm unsure if I should try it for LinuxPCE.  Any thoughts or information would be great.  Thanks in advance.
