XBMC - Xbox Media Center
XBMC - Xbox Media Center –
Throwing this out there, just curious if anyone is going to port Boxee or XMBC to PS3.. I know the PS3 works well on it's own as a media player, but these programs would be welcomed none the less.
Fantastic idea for debugs, which don't do media streaming as standard.
It should be possible providing that there is an XBMC driver for the PS3 GPU and HD chip, which I doubt.
Boxee and XBMC is the same btw. Boxee is just a commercial box and a skin for XBMC.
No Boxee is it's own program and was branched from the XBMC source code 4+ years ago... Boxee is not technically a commercial box, Boxee itself is a software application with Windows, Mac OSX and Linux ports available, there is also a Boxee hardware device manufactured and sold by D-Link which runs a Linux distro with Boxee preinstalled.
A proper XBMC port may never come to light, someone with the relevant skills would need to step up to the plate to and have the time and resources behind them to complete this and get a decent result, people have already gotten XBMC and MythTV running on the PS3 under Linux but due to the lack of native GPU accelerated drivers performance is woeful at best.
this is exactly what I am waiting for myself.
I cant wait for the day that my ps3 becomes my xbmc / mediaportal box.
the rsx is apparently based upon the Nvidia7800 (G70 Gpu).
This time around when we get Linux back on the ps3 the hypervisor should allow access to the gpu so maybe a hack from the linux drivers will work somehow.
I'm hoping it does, cant wait to plug my satellite card into the ps3 and use it as a pvr etc..
its nice to see that someone here has started a project for a media centre, however I would have thought a more prudent idea would be to try out some kind of port of the ppc version of xbmC, rather than start from scratch, commendable though it is. I'm not a coder so I don't know what's involved there and might be talking out of my arse.
I eagerly await this topic to develop into a full blown discussion!
