What Software Recommended for a HTPC





Possum
Hi

I'm thinking of retiring one of my PCs and turning it into a HTPC..

What Software would you recommend to run on it..

Maybe

http://xbmc.org/

or

http://www.mythtv.org/

Or maybe there is a Dedicated Linux distro for a HTPC

thx..

I'm a fan of XBMC. Interface is pretty straightforward, a lot of features, and a lot of plugins available.

I've tried a lot of stuff... Mythbuntu included...

However, I always come back to XBMC, more notably... Openelec (openelec.tv for more information).
One caveat to openelec is that it boots directly into XBMC so if you need a web browser then... your better off going with somewhat something like XBMCbuntu (The best of both worlds)

Hope this helps.

Regards,

Daniel
