wells Wrote:Would it be feasible/possible/an interest for an XBMC "Server" this server would be on a local PC or NAS device and would recognize devices that are netbooting , save the device(s) HW settings and run a centralized version of XBMC ala Linuxmce. Or go the way similar to VMWare VDI
This way all of the devices (XBOX's, PC's laptops, Webtablets) would run the same version of XBMC, same settings, fanart/thumbs, profiles etc.)
With the webserver enabled on the "server" (PSP's iphones, smartphones) could be used as remotes to control these devices in different rooms like an ORBITER used HERE
I think this is a logical step in the evolution of the remarkable XBMC cross platform program. More and more people have multliple XBMC devices. I have 3 XBOX's 2 win laptops 2 win PC's and 2 linux PC all running XBMC. So a solution along the lines above would benefit me and others like me greatly.
Can this be done and how?
By no means am I a scripter or developer - but I would like to pitch in if there is anyone willing to work this, I have a networking background.
I posted this yesterday in another thread. I see people asking for syncing features; profile mgmt; userdata updating between multiple boxes; centralized admin; "the ability to watch a movie in one room stop it, then continue where it left off in anothere room". etc on this forum.
Would this be a viable option for the future evolution of XBMC? a Whole home solution, a dedicated server. with "roaming profile" type of features.
