Hi All,

I'm looking for some software that can mimic xbmc's interface. The deal is, I have a media PC hooked up to the TV in my bedroom. I use my Belkin @TV to stream TV up there whenever I would like, along with having my favorite shows on the hard drive, and using Netflix and HBO Go.

I also use an xbox 360 controller for a few games, and I've been thinking that it would be nice to get my computer to book into a home theater interface (similar to xbmc), but where I could just place shortcuts (such as a shortcut to Steam, Netflix, @TV Player) and select them using my controller. From what I understand about xbmc, you can't place application shortcuts within the interface, so that is kind of a deal-breaker (I can watch my on-disk shows, but can't launch the TV player or Steam big picture or anything else like that).

If anyone has a suggestion for an application I could use, I'd appreciate it!

Thanks,

Nate

I know this is an old thread but new to this site. I used to use plex media server. Works great and can also be used to stream to your apple tvs rokus and even mobile devices.

I've used Archos and I liked it a lot. I don't have any issues with the bottom bar, due to the fact I am using a wireless Logitech keyboard and it is ver y easy to hide the Android bar by clicking on it. So I have some doubts about whether it is better MX than Arcos as player.
