  • Congrats! I don’t even own a x3100 based system, but I know that this is going to make a lot of people very happy. I’m already hooked enough on my (mac mini based) XBMC install that I was starting to feel bad for the poor x3100 people.

    Again, wonderful work Elan and crew.

  • What’s that a screencap of?

  • 2001

  • Awesome detective work Elon!

    Now one starts to think about what kind of dedicated Apple box to put next to your HDTV set. A mac-mini (still wondering if Apple is going to rev the mini and slap an X3100 in it)?

    An Apple TV? Does and ATV have the power to drive OSXBMC?

    I really want to utilize UPNP or perhaps bonjour from OSXBMC to get at my collection of media outside of iTunes.

  • @iDavid: The Mac Mini has been what we’re targeting. It seems the best combination of form-factor, price and speed, but it really depends on what you’re looking for.

    To everyone, thanks for the kind words and support.

  • Glad this project is getting alot of progress unlike the ps3xbmc port. Keep up the great work. I will be buying on the the new macbook pro this week look forward to testing on that.

  • You Rock!

  • Fantastic. Thanks for your persistent efforts on this project! I can’t wait for remote support and flawless 1080p playback — then I’m going to be in the market for a Mac Mini to replace my Windows Media Center machine.

  • @iDavid:

    If Apple does upgrade the mini you would hope they would do so in June/July when the Centrino 2 platform (Montevina) is released.

    This will provide many benefits including:
    – Penryn Intel Core 2 Duo processors
    – 1066 FSB, DDR3 Memory
    – GMA X4500 which provides improved VC1/AVC video decoding

    I won’t hold my breath… but I hope they finally do update the mini and not kill it off.

  • Wow! Thanks Elan!! I can’t wait to use it! If there is a list of testing you would like us to do, please let us know! I was already thrilled with streaming performance over wi-fi with the pink screen… the buffering works so well compared to Front Row with Transport Streams… Front Row was somewhat unuseable for me.

  • Thank you very much for your hard work!

  • Elan, once again you impress all of us with your diligent work on this project! Congrats on solving the problem!

  • Nice! Will ATI owners also benefit of the changes you made to the shader code?

  • I’ve been waiting for this…
    Thanks Elan.
    BTW You have an awesome dog

  • Yessssss! You’re awesome!

    I am so looking forward to actually watch some videos on my x3100 MacBook.

  • Officially been added to my dock will donate some beer soon
