    Hi Guys

    I have an original XBOX(us), it's been modded about a year ago to allow playback of UK games. I'm now looking to integrate it in to my main system and ideally want to use it as a media player for my CD's. I'd also quite like to put a UK p.s. in it.

    Can anyone tell me where to look for info on this stuff or has info on folk who can do this work for me?

    Gordon

    also try premodded.co.uk

    They sell CDs that contain all the software you'd need, and it auto installs - so you'd get Xbox media centre on there etc.

    Then its just a matter of networking it up to your PC and setting up your shares.

    I use my modded XBOX mainly as a media centre, as well as playing cds I use it to stream media form computer onto my xbox in the living room.

    For pretty much everything xbox mod related visit www.xbox-scene.com applications such as xbox media centre get updated almost dailiy so its worth checking out the website fairly often.

    Thanks everyone. Do you need to get a chip to do the media thingy? That CD suggests not?

    I am at home ill with a splitting headache so don't really want to get too involved with reading alot today.

    Cheers so far.

    You said that your xbox has already been modded, was that not with a chip? Or did you get the TSOP flashed? Either way you will be able to run XBMC.

    You do need a some sort of mod, either chip or software, on the xbox otherwise it will not run unsigned code.

    Check out xbox-scene it has all the information there is on abox modding.
