Xbox with 160gb HD + XBMC (Media Centre) £25.00

An original Microsoft Xbox, modded with an Xecuter 2.7 modchip (which enables you to switch between different BIOSs, boot to different dashboards, etc.) and upgraded with a 160gb hard drive. XBMC (Xbox Media Centre) is installed and set as the default dashboard, as I got this Xbox to use solely as a media centre. XBMC is chock full of codecs, so it will play just about any type of video file you can throw at it, and it will also play music and display photos. The 160gb HD gives you plenty of storage space for files, but it will also play files from a CD or DVD in the drive, or from a shared folder on a computer or network hard drive via ethernet. It's also a region free DVD player.

I've had this for a couple of years - bought it because I wanted a network DivX player for the living room and couldn't find a DVD/DivX player with network features for less than £300 so getting an Xbox for XBMC worked out a lot cheaper and XBMC is just a fantastic piece of software.

The Xbox comes with an official video cable plus scart adapter, a power cable and an official DVD remote and receiver. (There are no controllers or anything else included as it has only been used as a media player.)

Asking price is £25 (the hard drive alone is worth around that much)

Shipping will be £8 for delivery with DHL using Parcel2Go (or buyer's choice of postage, or collection)

Yes, apparently it does. I've never tried it though (just had to look up what CDG files are, actually), but the XBMC wiki says this:
http://xbmc.org/wiki/?title=HOW-TO_setup_XBMC_for_Karaoke

And I'm in London, SE15.

I'll pay £30 inc delivery...

On the condition you could put the Aeon theme on this for me.. Plus this will run stuff through networked shared folders ye?

Then once i recieve it take me through how to organize all my divx and stuff so the cover art auto downloads etc.. (ie: i'm guessing providing you name everything correctly.. It automatically downloads any cover art or background art for that movie or TV series?)

My Xbox has XBMC and plays MKV's so I assume so.

I don't know what the Aeon theme is, I just have a T3CH version of XBMC that was last updated about 6 months ago. It's very simple to update and add to, though, and there are plenty of guides online including the official XBMC manual and a Wiki. The way I have it set up might not be to the buyer's liking and they might just want to completely reinstall the software and start again, but I'd be happy to explain how it works for me. I just have a folder called F:\Videos and then some subfolders in there and shortcuts pointing to each folder in the Videos section on the main menu. It does also play files over the network, which you can easily add shortcuts to. I usually put files on it using an FTP program on my PC, but you can also use the file manager on the Xbox to copy files over the network or from a disk. However, I got a 1TB network hard drive a few months ago and started keeping all my media on that instead, so the Xbox's 160gb hard drive hasn't actually had anything on it for a while. Then I installed a media server on the 1TB drive so now I can watch most files on my 360 or PS3 instead. XBMC still has way more features though - I can only dream of the day when it's possible to get it on the 360.

You can't offer a higher price - shipping with DHL (via Parcel2Go) will be £8.21 to be exact, so the most you can offer is £33.21. If I take that as your offer you're second in line as you've hit the asking price.

Do I take that as an offer at asking price as well? If so, third in line!

Sure, fourth in line. It does indeed play MKV files. DivX now plays MKV files (as of vesion 7) and I assume they update the DivX codecs with every release of XBMC, but it's also been able to play H.264 MKV files for ages. It's actually capable of HD (720p, not 1080p), but you will need to find a component cable to get the full benefit of that.

Wow, that's pretty close to me. You can certainly have it if everyone else drops out!

isnt it illegal to sell modded xbox's?

No. It's illegal to sell pirated video games, and it's true that a modded Xbox would allow you to play pirated video games, but there's nothing illegal about modding an Xbox to use as a media centre. Microsoft tried taking the modchip manufacturers to court and lost, on the grounds that the chip's sole function isn't to directly attack and/or bypass the copy protection on the games, it simply 'unlocks' the console, allowing it to be used more like a PC, which means you can do lots more with it besides pirating games. Like installing XBMC, which is legal as the software is open source and freeware, and that's all I've done with it.
