Quote:to bad that you lost intrest in xbmc, and to bad mp is so much less intressting.
live goes on, better accept that
the xbox is near the end of its life and lets face it
a 733mhz box cant compete with any normal pc anymore
offcourse the xbox2 will arrive, but i doubt it will ever have a large developers community like the xbox1. reason? its probably much more secured to prevent modchips and
its not based on pc hardware anymore
mp being less interesting? i think not!
let me tell you something about mp:
we got all features xbmc has (except kai maybe) and more!
-live tv with pause,timeshifting, recording, search tv guide, manage of recorded tv shows, ...
-integration with most remote controls like winlirc, usbuirt, irman, mce2005 remote
-support for german, french & english imdb
-support for http://www.allmusic.com
to retrieve album, & artist info & cover art
-status plugin to watch your motherboard & set alarms
-wake up/suspend powerscheduler. wakes up your htpc if something needs to be recorded and shutdown again on inactivity
-my radio , internet, shoutcast and local fm radio
-msn messenger to chat with friends while watching your favortite video/tv show
-my mail to read your mail from within mp
-my recipies, this is for you wife. we accept meal master recipies and there are >10000 recipies of those
-my news, configure & read rss feeds
besides that we can play any media format, including dvd with menu's.
first beta for dvb-s is just released to watch,recording & timeshift any sattelite tv show. dvb-t/c will soon follow
to give you some more numbers.
last weekend we reached the top10 of sourceforge most active projects
we got more then 3000 registered users and the 0.1 version of mp has been downloaded >30,000 times
mp has been covered in well known magazines like c't in germany and 2 weeks ago a well know magazine rated mp as the top 6 mediacenters available (while we are still in beta fase!
reason we where 6th and not in the top 3 was because we didnt had dvb-s support (which we do now)
so i wouldnt say mp is less interesting ;-)
