I found this during my research into an alternative. Multiseat Gaming http://www.tomshardware.co.uk/faq/id-167...howto.html

Same thing really except our connected XBMC displays would be in different rooms.

With regard to the gaming end of things. Given that multiple Steam account instances can be sandboxed so they don't detect each other on the same PC and given each seat can have its own IP address, I am hoping that with SteamOS I can turn each low powered XBMC player in each of my rooms into a Virtual full powered PC gaming device. Dual booting with Openelec or even better XBMC running as an app on SteamOS.

Are you saying that this sort of setup won't be reliable for XBMC either? I don't intend on using it for gaming, but want 100% reliablity and picture quality for XBMC playback.
