    Sickest thing in my house. Hands down. Everyone i know has one now. And after the 360 drops the price of a used xbox to around $50, everyone’s gonna get one for christmas.

    I’ve got 2 in my houes, bedroom and living room, and they all feed off of my media server thats got all my content centralized. THIS is how you do it up. for news on xbmc.

    this link is sort of old. visit and learn from that. this link you have shows using evox dash (VERY OLD) and using a 1.5 or older xbox. you cant just buy that at target any more. anythgin you buy now is a 1.6/1.7 xbox and need a complient chip for that, which you must solder on or get a solderless adapter for. please dont buy a xbox and follow this guide you will get frustrated and waste a xbox.

    also if you have a xbox there is a method called a TSOP hack that you can get data on from if your xbox is older then feb2004 you dont even need to buy a chip and your xbox is hackable for free!
