One of the reasons I posted the thread was the thought of cross
platform access. I was thinking of setting up mythtv for the primary
school that my children attend but they run windows everywhere. I
figured that xbmc and mythbox provide cross platform support which is
what got me thinking about this in the first place.

I loaded xbmc this morning on my windows desktop with mythbox. It is
not working yet and stability does not seem that crash hot....
