I was literally just about to post this request when I saw yours.

Currently I use myhtpc and one of the nice things about it is the ability to launch any program. My main use for this feature is to launch emulators like MAME and gens etc. It would be really useful to be able to create a main button for "Games" and then below that have other buttons which launch other emulators.

The second part of this equation is that Myhtpc has programs which let you generate data files which are then displayed in myhtpc. You run a data file generating program against a set of Roms in this case, and then myhtpc reads that data file. Kinda of like how you hit "Scan" in My Music and then Media Portal has a list of files it just hands off to another program to play. Except in this case you would be scanning Roms or Movies etc and then handing them off to the right program which then plays them automatically with no user intervention.

I hope this rambling makes sense. Can't wait to see this program grow, which I'm sure it wil l thanks to you making it Open Source.

same here. htpc is a nice concept but the power of a pc cant be ignored, some apps are always needed here and there...
