My son just got an Xbox for Christmas – the guy at Wal-Mart said the Xbox had a lot more of a future than did Playstation 2. I guess he was right:
- Project Dreamix will turn the Microsoft Xbox into the ultimate home entertainment center. Right now we are in the alpha phase of course, but below is what we plan to complete before Beta release: –
PVR Features (Scheduled recording, fast forward, rewind, pause Live TV)
Video Playback (Based on Linux MPlayer – all popular file formats)
Audio/Music Playback (Based on Linux MPlayer – all popular file formats)
Image Viewer (Slideshow + Photo album)
Setup Menu (All configuration will be done with the Xbox controller and/or DVD Remote with the use of a graphical keypad)
Although Dreamix will be based on Debian Xbox-Linux, all necessary libraries will be included in the distribution of the CD image and will auto-excecute upon being inserted into the Xbox DVD drive. This will allow for a friendly install by the average user.
Note: There will be a need to purchase a hardware add-on for video input since the Xbox gaming console does not currently have video inputs etc.
Now going beta.
