windowed mode?
« on: October 03, 2007, 10:55:38 pm »
Though it is said there exist no silly questions, this might be a good candidate: I plan to give Linux MCE a try in the near future, and one of my computers is used for work, and as i got two screens attached, i like it to watch tv or a movie in a windows. Is this possible with Linux MCE, or does it just work fullscreen?

If you just want to watch TV on your computer then you are probably better off looking at installing MythTV or something similar, rather than linuxMCE. You can use any of the many media players available to watch movies.
When you decide you want all your media and TV watchable in various parts of your house and on your big screen TVs etc, then is the time to look at linuxMCE

... this is all just my opinion of course

Oh, I already run mythtv, but Linux MCE seems to offer some nice feature without the hassle of installing/configuring from scratch. And it's just the one Box that needs windowed mode, the other two (maybe three) should just Media Centers supported by a central (maybe headless) server.
