    On a chipped original Xbox XMBC installs from a bootable DVD ....you just need a copy of the XBMC image and follow the onscreen install instructions ! :thumbsup:

    You would need the ethernet cable anyway as the best part of xbmc is streaming music and video form your pc

    Make sure you get a crossover cable if you are connecting direct to the xbox or just the standard ethernet cable if you are going through a router

    You can install it using an ISO like said above but as you need the ethernet cable anyway really your best of doing it that way

    Google AIDeluxe for the ISO

    No problems just noticed my spelling it's rubbish, i'm going to go and correct it now lol

    Is the dashboard on the xbox the standard MS one, or some other homebrew? If it's homebrew you could just copy over a recent XBMC build to the E:\APPS dir using FTP.
