  1. You have to know the quality of any Netflix plugin for XBMC\ Plex can't compare to the Netflix developed addon for WMC. BTW: I did figure out how to launch directly into Netflix so all is good now.
  2. Well Plex is my work horse and of course handles all of my movies and tv shows. It is absolutely amazing but can't do it all. XBMC fills in with addons. I also use it for content I want to play but not to index. Windows Media Center is mainly for Netflix at the moment. I would love to find a command\script to launch directly into Netflix. Boxee is just a horse I haven't put out to pasture yet. I like the interface of a couple of the web content addons but I don't see myself using it much longer.
  3. Very Simple to setup yet robust media solution. .My setup includes (PLEX, XBMC, Boxee, Hulu Desktop, AutoHotkey), using http://www.flirc.tv/ with my DirecTv remote setting AV1 to my Audio reciever and AV2 to (DirecTV Reciever 00003). It allows me to switch between the apps with a touch of a button. Thanks to Flirc since it is what makes it so easy. Script for AutoHotkey (KillEmAll.exe is an AutoIt Script that I wrote to kill unresponding processes; not really needed)... ^!M::Run "C:\Windows\ehome\ehshell.exe" ^!b::Run ""C:\Program Files (x86)\Boxee\BOXEE.exe" ^!x::Run "C:\Program Files (x86)\XBMC\XBMC.exe" ^!h::Run "%LOCALAPPDATA%\HuluDesktop\HuluDesktop.exe" ^!p::Run "C:\Program Files (x86)\Plex\Plex Media Center\Plex.exe" ^!q::Run "KillEmAll.exe" Now my Flirc and Remote are programmed to allow for control in all the apps with their default installs... Format = Z Skip Back = Ctrl B Stop = Ctrl Shift S Skip Forward = Ctrl F Rewind = Ctrl Shift B Play = Ctrl Shift P Pause = Ctrl P Guide = Win Alt Enter (Windows Media Center) Active = N List = Q Exit = Esc Up,Down,Left,Right = Up,Down,Left,Right Select = Enter Back = Backspace Menu = H Info = I Red = Ctrl Alt X (XBMC) Green = Ctrl Alt B (Boxee) Yellow = Ctrl Alt P (Plex) Blue = Ctrl Alt H (Hulu Desktop) Vol, Mute = Controls Audio Reciever Chan Up = Pg Up Chan Down = Pg Down Prev = L 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,0 = 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,0 DASH = Ctrl Alt Q (KillsEmAll.exe - Kills Processes for Media Players) Enter = C -- Picture of the remote... http://www.chaoflux.com/EBAY/RC64R/5.jpg --
  4. I think this would be a great gui enhancement as well. Also to be able to "Erase" what ever IR signals are assigned to that particular virtual keyboard key would be nice. I had an issue when I was programming my Flirc that a random IR signal being put off by a lamp got linked to the "P" key so my video would pause randomly. Funny but frustrating. Short of reprogramming my whole setup again I ended up fixing it by clicking "Erase" and letting it sit there for 10 or so minutes until it received that unwanted signal again. It would have been nice to click "Erase" and then the "P" on the virtual keyboard to clear that IR signal.
