Need advise on cutting cable cost.

My last bill from Att was $215...sick of paying that much to watch only a few shows. I dont want to cut the cord from cable entirely. I would like to keep basic cable and internet, but still be able to watch the shows I like on HBO and showtime. I`m already a netflix subscriber, any other suggestions ? Can you buy season passes for most of the shows on HBO and Showtime?



Thanks!

The Netflix app sucks bad enough in it that I run mine off my Wii when I want to use netflix. 1channel will help things a ton if you get it going. It's definitely something that must've tinkered with though.

Netflix is laggy and only showing in SD no matter what display settings I change. Running perfect as always on XBox w/same ethernet connection. One thing I noticed was there weren't any HD/Audio feed indicators on the Android app. Is that app just not HD? This some booshit if so.

Are there any updates to the Fusion stuff on XBMC or other recommended addons you guys are using (haven't looked at the tvonline or WTF stuff yet)? I followed the link you ref'ed, Fish and installed a bunch of stuff from zip. Most of the ones you recommended weren't there anymore, and the other Icefilms/Sportsdevil's stuff all seems to be showing as broken when I try to install the video stuff in the addons.

So, yeah, frustrated enough to quit messing with it for tonight even though I didn't have to pay for it. I don't care as much about the Netflix since I also have that in HD on my XBox (and my bluray and my tv and my ipad and my...seriously, WTF?) but I'm pretty interested in actually getting the XBMC to work...
Is Netflix updated? Old versions of Netflix app were SD only. Check for updates. Make sure the firmware is up to date on the Jynxbox itself. Older firmware were bad with that model. Be sure you're running the latest version of XBMC as well. Should be 12.2 Frodo. Regarding the plugins, they are there I assure you. You just need to refresh the repositories to see them. It can be confusing. I posted this quite a while back.

Right-click and select Check for Updates and Force Refresh. Do this several times. I've had to do it like 10 times in some cases. It takes a while for it to kick in, as it's downloading in the background. Do each a bunch of times, and then click on the repo listing again. It should show Working and the spinning progress bar, and eventually show you the contents. If you don't see anything in the contents but the "...", then it's not updated yet. Sometimes the sources of these get overloaded. It can be confusing at first, but be patient it will work...
My suggestion? Say **** it, go have a beer with friends and family. Relax and don't let it frustrate you tonight.

Then in a day or so, head over to this thread and read through it: http://www.xbmchub.com/forums/xbmc-a...ndroid-hd.html

From brief reading in that thread, it looks like it takes a little tweaking to make that smooth, and there are some updates available that you obviously need.

Thanks, both good to know. I'll just quit dicking with Netflix now. I'd spent enough time with that and a few other things that by the time I got to XBMC and the add-ons weren't where I expected them to be I didn't feel like continuing to look.

I'll give finding a good link to 1Channel and Sportsdevil a shot tomorrow.

Groovy, thanks. I'll definitely check those out and see where my shit's sideways.

It downloaded updates for the firmware as soon as I booted it up, but I suppose it may not have gotten the newest stuff. The Jynxbox website is a joke. Not a funny one.

Like a dumpster fire that someone put out with acid.

I'm definitely working on beer #3, but no family around which is why I thought it might be a good project for today and tomorrow.

Again, much appreciation to you and NewChief.

Tomorrow we ride! (Tonight we get blackout, knee-walking, turkey-necking shithoused.)

Welp, followed the instructions, upgraded all the apps, upgraded to Frodo 12.3 and now we have add-ons.

Starting to watch some stuff on 1Channel, but having some issues with video being stuttery and audio slightly out of sync. Have futzed with the video settings a bit, but not having much luck correcting. Any suggestions or is this likely just an issue with the stream?

Thanks again to both of you for all the help.

Then go to main XBMC screen. Go to Videos\Files. Click Add Videos. Then add the folder that you set in the 1Channel addon settings. Tell it whether the folder is movies or TV. Then have it scan the folder for new content. After that, you'll see a new entry appear in the main XBMC screen for your Library.

Here's a video:



You can skip to about the 2min mark, and see how to add movies or skip to 5:20 to see how to add TV to the Library.
took a bit but finally figured it out. Man, talk about a lot of steps.

OK. I've been putting off cutting the cord, but think I'm ready. What hardware device do you recommend at this point? Anything new out there?

Fish. You're the man. Thanks for all the advice you've been doling out.

Most of this stuff is super easy and quick after you've done it a couple of times (which you'll end up doing, most likely due to having to reset the box on occasion).

It is happening as I predicted it. HD streaming is getting to a point where you can find live events in HD for free. I was watching UFC 169 last night in 720p. Hell, that is better than any Acestream or Streamtorrent I could find.

I just read an article on how ESPN's #1 policy now is to protect the pay TV model. Anyone hoping for WatchESPN as a stand alone subscription is dreaming.

Hell, ESPN is one of the most consistent, easiest to find streams on Sportsdevil.

How big of a pain is initial setup and ongoing glitch troubleshooting of G-box? Thinking about pulling the trigger shortly.
