It would be nice in the xbox media center that you could schedule programs for recording. Also delete programs when finished viewing.
dirkoneill said:I agree that this would be a killer feature. With microsoft releasing their own xbox media center in October, XBMC and MP could use an extra boost to stay ahead of Windows Media Center Edition. If you could run MP on a computer and use XBOX (as a front end) to schedule recordings, it woudl be killer. The files then could be played off of the server to the xbox over smb as is usually done already in XBMC. This way the server running MP could be in a closet some place or in another room and any tv with an xbox could schedule recordings. This makes it easier to watch tv and record tv because then you don't have to be at your computer. It won't need to play live tv or timeshift because, well, that's why you have a tv. I was thinking about putting up a rewards program tied to a paypal account to convince a XBMC developer to do this because I feel that it is an essential part to the future of MP and XBMC. Perhaps a reward would even bring Frodo back to the xbox scene if only for a short while. Ever since he ported MP, in my opinion, it seems like no big gains have been maid on the XBMC front. So Frodo, what do you think about it?
