Frankly, I haven't found any that I like, or that will give me a nice
interface via my tv and support for remote controls (not to mention a
community behind it). I would have to say that 99% of the
projects/software I see out there is aimed for streaming video.
Oh, and I think MythGames and MythDvd is pretty cool too.
Do you have any recommendations that I can take a look at?
