Results were the same - stuck in an endless loop! It works as you noted, but there is no way to get out of XBMC - if I close XBMC, the script starts it again, if I <alt><tab> to the dektop or any other program, the script sends me back to XBMC. I had to start task manager to kill it...and fortunately have 2 monitors going otherwise, it doesn't give you enough time to kill it before it shifts back to XBMC.
Do you leave XBMC running all the time? How do you get out of the loop when you shut down XBMC?
yes, that is a minor annoyance to the script. im going to be messing around to see if i can resolve that. not sure if its possible. that said if you hit the \ button it will put xbmc in a window. go to your taskbar by the clock and you should be able to right click on the H icon, and either pause or exit the script, which will allow you to get out of xbmc and do something else. my htpc has one job, and thats to act as a media center, so i dont do anything besides xbmc/hulu on it, so the way its acting by restarting xbmc doesnt really bother me.
