Twonky media 4.4.18 and it works great but I am having troubles with Divx conversions of my media and a might change if i end up using ISO images.
On the client machines I'm using a mix of the following:
Windows 7 Media Center
Media Player Classic Home Cinema Edition
Xbox360 file shares
XBMC on three xboxes, with ps3ms for two ps3's
XBMC in almost every room in the house
SageTV Server 6 with
SageTV Client and a
SageTV HD-100 Extender with HDMI pulling 7 watts
2x WinTV-500MCE cards and
2x HVR-2250 cards and a
and a 13.5 TB unRaid Server for recordings and system backups
Plex on my Mac, Plex and XBMC on my hackintosh, and XBMC on a classic xbox in the living room. I got the thumbs up from the wife to upgrade to a HTPC, now I just have to save a few dollars for it (XBMC Live will be loaded on that).
Popcorn Hour C-200.
Windows7 Media Center with Mediabrowser in the loungeroom and PS3mediaserver streaming to the PS3 in the bedroom.
XBMC - 2 x PC's
XBMC - 2 x xbox
PCH A-200 and C-200.
SageTV Server V6, 2x HD200 media extenders, 2x HVR-1600 tuners
I am using a TVIX 6500a with my budget build uNraid server.
I am looking into a 2nd player such as a HD Dune Prime, HDX Bone or TVIX S1 or N1.
My 2nd player is now the SageTV HD300. My 6500a is beginning to act a bit flaky so I am looking for a replacement. Have hopes in the Mede8er MED500x2, but that has not been reviewed yet.
GB-PVR (soon to become n-PVR) http://www.gbpvr.com/ since 2004. Really mostly for it's PVR capabilities. I tried different things back then, even MythTV on Linux. Nothing came close to the robustness and ease of setup of GB-PVR. Support on forum and by author was excellent, and the killer argument was that it supported Hauppauge MediaMVP, a small inexpensive extender box that made the whole package available in any room for peanuts.
Still use it, currently with a HDHomeRun dual tuner, Fire-DTV tuner both DVB-C and a Dual DVB-T tuner card. My analog cards got retired ½ year ago. MediaMVPs are all but retired. Using popcornHour A100 in the living room, supported by a native interface (mvpmcx2 running n-PVR).
And with high WAF and kid-usability, I'm a happy user indeed.
Boxee on a Revo 1600
XBMC on my desktop and TV connected as 2nd screen.
XBMC live in 4 rooms! All running on Revo's
currently running an automated setup only problem is my HTPC has run out of room for more Hard drives thus forum.xbmc.org I found this place.
right now I have SABnzbd,SickBeard,CouchPotato, all working 24/7 downloading my content.
I also have Nintendo,Super Nintendo, and N64 ROms on there with Sega, Amiga, and Playstation on the way.
I plan to build my unRaid sever and it too will be fully automated.
XBMC > than anything else when it comes to a media center front end.
WMC 7 w/ Media Browser
Considering switch to MythTV backend with XBMC frontend(s)
^^ You will not be disappointed.
Sage 6 with 3 clients and 1 place shifter
Sage 7 with 1 extender so far
7MC w/Media Browser+TMT3+AnyDVD HD on all HTPC's
I went with 7MC because it was the easiest to deploy for TV with guide data. Not to mention it's essentially free since I already had Windows 7 installed. I just opened WMC and clicked on a bunch of Next buttons and voila, working DVR in less than an hour (the channel scan took a while).
Dabbled with XBMC a bit but its metadata retrieval isn't as trouble-free as Media Browser at the moment (for anime in particular). I need to replace the ION HTPC in the bedroom so I could use the ION as a sandbox for alternative media center front-ends (e.g. Sage, MythTV, XBMC, etc).
