jbs Posted December 10, 2008 Share Posted December 10, 2008 OK, I'm going to carefully tread back into the turbulent waters of xbmc here, but really only to address my own ignorance. I've heard the term hundreds of times, but I'm ashamed to admit, geek that I am, I'd never apparently learned what it is. I always thought it was something that just ran on an xbox, but now that I've gone and, you know, RTFM, I learned (I think) that this is a cross-platform media server, and that according to readers of one of my favorite blogs (lifehacker.com) it's tops in the media serving space.So my question is, in the C4 integration of XBMC, if I'm running xbmc on a Windows PC, would the video need to be coming out of the PC (and C4 is controlling xbmc) or is C4 actually acting as the destination for video streaming over IP from the xbmc PC. That is to say, would the video be coming out of the component (or other) outputs on my HC300?I realize this question is steeped in ignorance, so apologies in advance for that. And thanks to Alan for opening my eyes to what sounds like a very cool product in xbmc. This may be what gets me to finally retire my five-year old media server and upgrade to a box with video outputs (if the answer to the above question is that the PC is the video source).--Jason Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
