    Yes - in an earlier post I mentioned this but was not sure since I've not implemented as such due to touch screens. The bigger piece would be a missing DB for movie archives and some other aspects which Xlobby, MCE, Media Portal and others have..... Other than that the exclusions are small as a "front-end" but as a PVR, it'd pretty heavy - more in-line with Xlobby.

    mmm, this look like my skin for mediaportal. (3DMP)

    I have all PSD's of this skin. It's possible that anyone try implement this skin into RR?

    It's possible add a "Thumbnail" seleccion into Music and video module?

    I totally agree, Road Runner is well suited for a task such as this. It can add many more features to what is available out there in the HTPC market as well. Such as total customization, Playlists, embedded applications, flash games and emulators embedded ect ect.

    Where RR REALLY lacks unfortunately, an I am really surprised that it has not been mentioned in the thread yet one yet, is to have a well done TV Guide. It would need the smart programming to pick shows to record 2 weeks in advance ect. This is, by the the absolute heart of ANY HTPC application. Sure the other stuff is nice, but without TV Scheduling and a decent guide, its not a HTPC.

    Add to that the time shifting recording, multiple tuner support ect. It gets to be quite a complex task.

    I am not running down this ide at all, and as mentioned, given it serious thought. just with what I have mentioned, makes it a MAJOR project.

    The scheduling is easily handled via web (I can schedule my DVR by cellphone if I want using either ORB or TitanTV remote scheduling). The local functions like embedding, time shifting, etc. could get tricky without an OSK or some serious programming, but I don't see it as that significant an issue for the talented programmers here.

    Im glad this thread came back to life

    I am in the process of redoin my house with all home automation (lights,security camera's,zoned audio,distributed HD video,etc)

    Im still in the planning stages and do not know what Frontend to go with that will satisfy my needs. P3rv3rt B3ar i read some of your post over at xlobby( i knew that named looked familiar) Im looking for a Frontend (Like MCE) that has everything all in one.. Xlobby looks good but i dont believe it supports live TV(DVR) on a HD TV Set...

    My main goal is to have all my HD TVs (3 Plasma's, 1 DLP) running some kind of MediaCenter software(Like MCE)..the reason why i say like MCE is because MCE is great, but the main thing its lacking is Zoned Audio, actually thats the only reason why i cant use it, or i would
    I will also be setting up 3 inwall touchscreens around my house to have access just for Security Camera, BabyCam, lights, ZonedAudio,climate control
    The 3 inwall screens will kinda be like controllers..so i looked at Mainlobby,CQC which are both great but they lack live TV and are really not mean to used on a TV with a remote

    RR is great, ive been using it in my car for about 3yrs now..and would love to see it dev. into a custom mediacenter frontend, how hard would it be to add home automation stuff to it, including DVR (live TV)

    To all the coders\dev's would it be hard to add zoned audio to RR, while showing what song is playing in what room

    the graphics subsystem really needs to be updated(in the works)
    for RR to really be considered for a HTPC realm

    Now that meedio is dead the best option out there is mythtv(free) sagetv(notfree) or yahoo tv which is a hacked up licensed meedio, or of course MCE with it's DRM.
