Good Ole' Xbox
yea, i have plenty of roms on the good 'ole xbox lol...along with XBMC...its kinda left the wii only useful for wii games lol.
I've got a 200gb wd drive in my xbox with an Xecutor mod chip in it..i mainly use the media center in it for music
I only bought my xbox last january (my first console ) and modded it with XBMC 2 days later, i now have 10x including 1 brand new never used Crystal version. I have 2 setup with 160gig hdd's, wifi adapters and component cables for HD video output, coinops emulator with 1066 arcade classis games. Going to build a few more and remove the dvd rom so they are slim cases and portable, i use mine for playing movies and mp3's mostly and as storage units. Excellent cheap media centres for as little as $10 . I got one last week for $10 with a near new 160gig hdd and working dvd rom.
I also love the xbox i have 4 on the network with XBMC what a supurb bit of kit, all the kids use them to watch films and stream music from my pc..
I would love to keep this section alive..
So lets see what you got and what software you running on your old xbox..
New tread started..
Wont be long before XBMC is running on a 360 so that oughta give it a new lease of life.
XBMC is good stuff
I am new here to hack my wii with a softmod and I already have a hard modded XBOX original with a 120GB hard drive. I use the xbmc and it seems like a pretty good program.
Well it certainly has revolutionized the way my family views media, we watch all our movies, listen to all our mp3's and view all of our digital photo's using XBMC - certainly the best bit of software i have ever installed and used on anything. I have 3 currently with 160gig hdd's 2 of which have wifi adapters for streaming.

Golord, thats pretty cool specs, i'd love the 1.4ghz cpu and 128mb ram upgrade. I have just finished my 2nd slimbox with 4 more to go, all will have a tsop flashed bios and larger hdd's, no 2 below . Bought dremel copy yesterday on sale for $30 which made the cut sooo easy -
