014: Front-Ends: What I Actually Use

After our front-end series, I wanted to show you what I actually use from day to day. This was originally planned to be an online exclusive, but we wanted all of you to watch.

We’ve got 2 more season 1 episodes left. Season 2 is in the works (it’s a long story).

    I tried to get my Xbox to play my movies from my mac using Connect360 but all it says is the “file can’t be played because the formate may not be supported.” Any suggestions?

    I use the same setup, XBOX360 as media center extender, works like a charm, get all kinds of content on it with PlayOn & Tubecore. We even cut our cable. My wife likes it too :)
