Hello there,

I've just found out about this App, and I wonder if it's possible to have XBMC installed directly on my TV, which is a Sony Bravia internet tv with DLNA
No. You will need a separate PC to run XBMC on, however you can make the TV act as the PCs display.

fair enough, thanks.

Therefore if I have a PC connected to my Telly I have the ability use VLC player, so XBMC therefore is just a front-end.

I thought it was more than that.

OK, np, thanks
Why would you need to run VLC player with XBMC?
Why in the world would you want to use VLC on a regular OS on your main TV? Heck, why would you want to use a mouse with your main TV?
I guess you should try XBMC so you understand what it does, you will be blown away ;-)
