If you’re like me you still have a old Xbox laying around. I don’t use it but after reading over the Xbox to HTPC hacks at hackaday, I’m thinking I need to do something with it. While XBMC isn’t going to give you everything in a media center, it will give you a great look and the ability to stream SD content. HD audio and video isn’t possible for a number of reason on the xbox but the biggest reason is power of the unit. It’s still great for SD though. I have over 200 DVDs ripped to my Windows Home Server that the Xbox could take advantage of. Even if you don’t have a Xbox, you can find them cheap and load XBMC to have a cheap media center.
